Type of a scam Tax Collection

I received an automated call from the "legal department of the IRS" stating they received a claim against me and I need to return the call before they proceed and I can get arrested. I called back the number but it hangs up. I know the IRS doesn't call and threaten to arrest people but I was curious about what they would say.

Telling me there are 4 law suits on me for tax filling errors if I don't respond in 24 hrs they will send local cops to arrest me.

This a recording when called back it says nothing about being IRS.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

Messages have been left on my phone regarding 4 charges against me and that I need to call within the next two hours to avoid "being taken into custody by federal officers". It further states to call 325-999-8797 to avoid arrest. (I do not owe the IRS.)

I phoned the number from a landline just out of curiosity and the lady who answered the phone stated she was with the IRS. She asked for my name then put me on hold. When she returned a minute or so later, she stated the phone number didn't match so I could disregard the call. (I never gave her my phone number or any additional identifiable information.) This has happened 2 days in a row (12/6 & 12/7).

I just want to report it so others' can be aware and not fall for this scam.

For days now I have been receiving phone calls from the above numbers. They leave voice messages stating things like :you will be taken into custody by local cops as there are 4 serious allegations pressed on your name. We request you call us back so we can discuss the case.

I called back yesterday and got a woman who was obviously in a call room. She said I had $4000 in back taxes to pay. When I asked her to send me something on paper because I didn’t understand her she hung up.

I called the number again and got a man this time, I asked him who he was working for and he hung up. I called a third time and a man with an Indian accent picked up and just simply said ‘[censored] off! Do not [censored]g call again’.

Unbelievably they called again today with the same scam. I did not call back.

Prerecorded message: caller said they were IRS and I had not done my taxes correctly and they were sending a sheriff to my door to arrest if I did not send them money right away to prevent this from happening; The number given *** was probably a phishing scam since the number belongs to a private individual. I did not return the call to the scammers; I looked up the information.

IRS Telephone Scam - I received a threatening voicemail stating to call 908-975-0525 before my bank accounts were frozen and I was arrested. I returned the call and it was answered by a man who stated, "IRS." I was informed that I was selected at random for a tax audit, and it had been found that I intentionally defrauded the Internal Revenu Service. Because I had not responded to prior correspondence, there was a warrant out for my arrest. I was further informed that if I disconnected the call, it would "activate" something (unclear as to what that was), and that authorities would be at my house within 45 min to arrest me. I was given a case# for my audit and a warrant# for my arrest.

I received a call and a voice mail about me owing back taxes. I just got married 3 weeks ago and they had my married name and said I owed back taxes. I asked them what name the back taxes were under and they said her married name. I told her I only had this name for 3 weeks so how could I owe back taxes and she hung up on me. I also received a text message threatening me with international fraud and to call 469-982-5000. The voice mail I received wanted me to call 707-271-0156

I let the call go to voicemail while I was at work. The voicemail reported that federal agents would be after me if I did not call within a couple hours. I called back to see what was going on, IRS was repeated three times before i said can I help you? The guy asked my age, my age do you know my name I replied? Had my husbands info originally with Z's in the spelling in random places also mine. He was able to give me an employee ID number but not accurate for IRS employees. He reported that I defrauded the government since 2013 and need to pay over 5K or they would seize everything. I did not offer any money ... rather quite the opposite with other legal issues at this time. However;

I received call allegedly from the IRS saying they were going to suspend my SS# because it had been used in a criminal case in Texas. The caller had an accent. He read off my complete social security number as well as a case number and arrest warrant number. He would not tell me where he got my SS# and ended the call. The number on my caller ID was 800-222-4569.

Received a call where the man reported he was with the IRS and doing an investigation. The IRS does not call you and nor would they call about an investigation into you. This man was seeking compromising information, I knew it was a scam so I hung up.
