I had received a call and a voice mail from the phone number: 1(206) 231-0113 . Telling me I was under investigation as well as my property. If I did not call back or pay my fines/debts I would be arrested from my home within the hour.

I called them back and told them this

“ I know this is a scam. You guys like to scam people out of there money. Please take me off of your call list and have a good day.” I hung up the phone after that statement.

I received a phone call which I did not answer but had a voice message left from supposedly the IRS. The message said I must call back at 202-499-1502 and don't try to disregard the message. It said if I "don't return the call and they do not hear back from my attorney they only the only thing they can do is wish me good luck as the situation badly unfolds and take care."

I was called and told that police are on their way to pick me up from my home since I didn't report foreign transactions on my taxes. I knew all this to be untrue so I asked that the police come and pick me up at work. The person hung up without taking my work address.

They called and said I needed to call them today before they file a lawsuit. So I called, left a voicemail. They called back and the threats began. They said if I did not pay $500 today that my bank account would be seized and my license would be suspended and I would be arrested. Then I had to pay within 30 minutes or they would come arrest me. That they had traced my phone call and knew where I was. I finally hung up on them.

The scammer poses as an IRS agent and first verifies your name . Then they proceed to tell you that there is a lawsuit against you for back taxes that you knowingly did not pay and fraudulently or illegal did so. They give you a fake case number and agent name and ID , then proceed to read a drawn out statement asking you to agree to what they say you did . At times during the call I asked them to repeat themselves because i could not understand what they were saying because of their thick "Indian" or "Asian" accent and they became very rude and aggressive with the call . At this point I asked to speak to an senior officer that could help me understand what this is about and they hung up .

I received a phone call stating I was being pursued by the IRS by for back taxes I owed . And this person calling was a police officer threatening me with jail . They called the wrong person that morning . I turned the tables on them and called them back and threaten them with jail . They became very annoyed with me and would not answer my calls after 18 times. The callers where Indian ( India ) in origin . However I did ask questions on the initial call and they did have some of my personal information. Which is very threatening to me .

Type of a scam Tax Collection

I was called on my cell phone from a random number 224-603-1937 Antioch, IL. They left a vm and asked for an immediate call back. I called back and the phone was immediately picked up and said IRS, I spoke with an individual introducing himself as Eugene Wilkinson badge # 90147. He asked me for my name, put me on hold and verified my address. He said there was an open case under my name. I said I lived there and he then asked me for my SS#. I said why do you need by Social and he hung up. I called back and this time I wasn't given a name or badge number and they asked for my name, verified my address and once again asked for my social, I asked why do you need my social and they hung up. Very evident that this was a scam, so I called back again, when they answered I said that this is very evident this is a scam, and that you should be ashamed of yourself and he laughed and hung up. All of the people that picked up the phone where of indian backgrounds and it was evident this was a call center, very busy and loud in the background.
