Call claiming to be IRS,

Said that there were Federal charges against my name, and that an Arrest Warrant was going to be issued.

They said that this was my one chance to resolve it, and gave me a $ amount that i could pay to extend those charges.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

My son, who lives in SLC, Utah was contacted by "the IRS" claiming he owed back taxes. He was told to go to Best Buy, buy STEAM cards and then once he did this, at two different Best Buys, to scratch off the code on the back of the card and read the information to the scammers. What they did well was they kept him on the phone with lots of threats of arrest and being made public. This way, he was unable to call us, his parents, to ask for advice. We are now just learning that this scam went on for three hours! As the scam was with steam cards and the money is already gone, we do not know if the bank will be able to get his money back for him.

I received a call saying there was an arrest warrant for me from the IRS. I was informed to call the number back to resolve the issue before they turned the warrant to my state authorities. I did not call the number back but researched it on the internet where I found it was a scam.

I received a automated phone call 4 times today that says it's Lisa Williams an officer with IRS and that they need me to respond before they proceed. I called them back because I was told that I should request that they send me a certified letter and when I said this the person hung up on me.

First I received a call from “the Irs ,informing me of a suit that had been filed against me. I was told to call the number back to receive all the information to settle my case.” Irs scam Greg (middle eastern accent obviously not GREG) told me I was being sued by the Irs. He asked my number so I gave my number for my home phone. Cell phones can be hacked. We keep info on them that could be detrimental to our families. When he asked my name I asked him if he could give my first name I would give my last name. He refused so I told him that I would not be giving him any more information. He hung up. I hate scammers. I do not owe money. I am not going to give more information to anyone. My next question would have been what is the office address to come in and discuss my case. It would not be a post office.

he identified himself as an officer working for the IRS, and claimed that i owed thousands of dollars.

the only info that he was able to repeat was the information that i (falsely) provided.

i called back under an assumed name again, and gave different information, but got the same story from the scammer.

A voice recording says they are from the IRS and that you have to call the number back within 24hrs or they will send the local police to arrest you because you have outstanding legal issues. They’ve called me 7times in less than 12hrs and utilized 2 different numbers. I attempted to call the number back, blocking my number first, a recording asks you to wait for the next available agent. No one answered and after 4min I hung up.

This call came to my phone at 9:55 am on Nov. 17, 2017. The voice sounded female and professional. She stated the call was from the IRS, that I had been identified as committing fraud and that a warrant for my arrest had been (or would be) issued for my arrest. My instruction was to call a 202 number immediately. Unfortunately, I was so shaken I didn't get the full number. The 202-899-9021 I retrieved from my caller ID, but I did not attempt to return the call.
