Therefore they were declaring the issue fraudulent and had been turned over to the crime investigation department and a lawsuit had been filed against me. They asked to collect personal information. When I refused they hung up.

A voicemail was left on my cell phone stating:

"evidence that I have been willful act to defraud the federal government, for the same an arrest warrant has been issued under your name, to get more information about this case file, please call immediately on our number which is 202-552-1518, I repeat 202-552-1518, thank you"

So when I called 202-552-1518 from my cell phone, I was asked to give my name so they can look up my case number. I stated I'm called because you may have the wrong number because my name was not mentioned; he aggregately insisted I give my name, I stated please may I have your name and ID number, he angrily repeated this is the IRS now give me your name! I said you are very unprofessional yelling at me, I know this is not the IRS and I hung up the phone.

Then I called the Louisiana to confirm if this was a scam attempt, so when I informed the lady she responded to me as if I was an [censored] stating, "everybody knows the IRS does not call people, I stated ma'am that is why I called to confirm, not everybody knows that about the IRS; she insisted further stating EVERYBODY KNOWS THE IRS DON'T CALL PEOPLE, I said ma'am you don't have to make people feel stupid for not knowing that of the IRS", then we hung up.

Voice recording claims the IRS has filed a lawsuit against me and are going to send the sheriff to arrest me and freeze my bank account unless I call about my case asap. I don't owe any taxes and haven't been notified by postal mail of any delinquent taxes. I am positive this is a scam.

They keep calling me on the phone, saying they are investigating me for owing taxes. Since it's been 6 months with no response from me, they are filing a law suit for 'intentional tax fraud'. I do not owe any tax money and continue to hang up on them.

I received a call this morning from the phone number above. They actually had the audacity to leave a message on my cell phone and a return phone number. When I called them back they did not answer the phone with a professional name and when I asked with whom I was speaking, she replied it's the IRS. I told her that this is not the IRS and this type of communication is a medium used by the IRS and that this was a SCAM. She promptly hung up on me. I called them twice again and got two additional people on the phone with exactly the same results. They speak with very prominent accents and are rude on the phone. In their voice mail they stated that there are 4 serious allegations "pressed" against my name. They suggest I call them promptly before legal action is taken against me. I didn't play along with them so they ended the call abruptly. I am a professional, in good standing with the IRS and knew immediately it was a SCAM.

The caller will try to scare you into giving them your personal information by claiming you have been avoiding paying taxes. They threatened legal action. If you ask for a supervisor they pass the phone to someone else who clearly pretends to be a supervisor.

They fake IRS badges and ID's.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

At approximately 2:06 pm on Monday, March 26, 2018 I received a call on my cell phone from a New York number. When I answered a recording indicated that there was a serious matter that needed to be handled with the IRS. I immediately hung up. I called the number right back and a lady answered immediately and said "IRS." I waiting a couple of minutes and called again and this time a man answered quickly with "IRS." I hung up and did not engage in any conversation. I know that I do not owe the IRS any money because I have already received my refund, but I am annoyed that this kind of scam could affect some people who might in fact owe some taxes.

I called my local and she advised me to report this call in this fashion.

BE CAREFUL AND STAY ALERT! The IRS does not contact by phone, and if anyone has ever tried to call the IRS, you would know that NEVER does anyone answer the call on the first ring.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

I received a phone call on my free government provided cellular phone, not my landline. The message said they were the IRS and there was a large error on my tax return and I must call back on the number (202) 871-2229. (I don't remember the exact words they used on the recording.) I knew it was a fake call since I haven't had to file a tax return since 1988 and I know the IRS doesn't call, they send letters. I did however call the number back and I told the male answering the phone that I had received a call regarding my tax return. I then asked him what year of return he was referring to and he then said something I could not understand. (He spoke quickly and with a middle eastern accent.) I had to ask the male person to repeat himself 3 times before I understood that it was my name he was asking for and at that point the call was disconnected by him.

This recording claims that I am being investigated for fraud from the IRS and will go to jail if not paid. This is a scam. Do not allow it to scare you. The IRS doesn't call you they send all notifications by mail.
