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.

I picked up phone after my answering machine had answered phone call. Someone stating they were from the IRS said I owed money and I needed to call the number give immediately. It was so fast that I could not get the number and because I had picked up the phone it did not record. The person talking had an accent possibly Indian.

I've gotten got a phone call today from a nasty man who keeps calling me saying he's with the IRS. He wants me to pay $17,000.00. He asked me for my attorney's name because I would be arrested. He has a Middle Eastern accent. I thought it was real until I heard the dog barking in the background. He said I had till 4 o'clock to pay him $695.00. He had so much of my information, name, address, phone number, and drivers license number. I was so scared!

I got a voice mail from a man who told me to call back about tax evasion. I spoke to a man with a foreign accent, maybe Middle Eastern, he told me he was from the IRS. He said he was an office, and I had an outstanding balance. I said I could pay it out of my tax returns. He said he would contact the local sheriff and put out a warrant for my arrest. He said I should get an attorney. He asked for my address and phone number and I gave it to me. I told him I had no money, and he became rude.

I keep getting voicemails from somebody claiming to be the IRS telling me they are filing a court case against me. In their voicemail they do not name who they are filing against or explain what for. I am retired, and do not understand why I am getting these calls. I do not think they are legitimate.

Received a phone call by an automated speaker saying this was the IRS and I need to return a call within 24 hours before they sent the officials out to arrest me at my home or work address. They told me to call back this phone number that they called from and when I called it says this Google subscriber is unable to answer.

They called from the number above and I listen to a recorded message. The message is extremely scary and authoritative. It says you have to get in contact with them right away because the IRS says you are going to be arrested if you don’t. They mention again and again you have to call them right away you going to go to jail if you don’t there’s no way they can help you if you don’t call. When I called, they identify themselves as the IRS. I asked them are you actually working for the IRS. And the person I talk to Chyna stopped for a minute and then said yes. But it’s clearly not the IRS

Received a robocall telling me that I was being sued by the IRS and if I did not call back immediately that a warrant would be issued for my arrest. I attempted to call the number back with the number blocked and it would reject the call. I have heard from others that this is a scam and they want you to pay off your IRS debt on the phone with them in VISA Pre Paid gift cards. I cannot believe anyone would fall for this but if figured I would out a warning out there.

I keep getting a recorded phone message, sometimes twice a day, on my landline saying it's the IRS and that I've been named in a lawsuit with them, the IRS..and that if I don't call the # back that they leave on the message which is the # I reported, that I will face legal consequences. So earlier today I called that # back from a phone not associated with me at all, and a man answered and said IRS, how can I help you? Then I said what IRS is this?...he said the tax collecting IRS.. I then asked...since when does the IRS make phone call and not send out official letters to citizens?...he then said, the tax collecting IRS *** with an F......I hung up immediately.....can some 1 please take care of this obvious problem and scam-job??...thanks very much...

A foreigner called and told her to go to Best Buy in Grove City, OH and buy a gift card, and to give them the security number off the back as payment for tax fraud from 2016. They told me not to tell anyone. Officer Mark Williams # 198020, then another came on the phone with officer number IRM 24101. They said I owe $6000, and should pay them a thousand dollars a day. They asked how much money I had in the bank. They said they were going to send an officer to my home. He said if the clerk asked why I wanted the card, I was to say for my own personal use. He asked if I wanted to pay or go to prison. He said this was confidential not to tell anyone. While I was in Best Buy, he called 19 times.

The name came up Santa Ana Ca

They told me to call 714-881-3136 immediately to avoid the arrest warrant issued in my name from the IRS and the recording sounded very legit until I called back and they wanted to know my name and phone number and when I refused to give it, they hung up. After calling several times they told me to calm down and when I said this is a sick scam on people, they hung up again. People just don't have enough to do....

The call was a recording indicated that I had been identified by the IRS for a law suit and I should call the number immediately to avoid the legal proceedings. I looked the number up on the internet and it is apparently a residence that has had some legal issues before.

It was automated. It said they were going to file criminal charges against me if I didn’t call this number back. I owed money but they didn’t say how much. Even on the details of the number they called from was a $ sign that I could use to pay. I blocked the phone number.

Receiving calls from a number and says "this is the IRS and you need to return our call at a different number and they gave 323-471-1929 for return call, I believe they called from 202-629-9001. Said to not ignore the call or legal action will follow. They need to hear from me or my attorney. I know the IRS doesn't call but there are some elderly who might not understand and people need to stop taking hard earned money from good working people. I did not and will not be returning the call.
