Type of a scam Tax Collection

I got a call from ###-###-#### and i didn't answer. They left a messsge saying there was a warrant out for my arrest for tax fraud and multiple other things. I then called back and they said they were the IRS and that there was a warrant out for my arrest and my taxes have been filed incorrectly and I owe $6,179. I was in shock, they knew my address, phone number, my husband's name and that I didn't work. They kept going on and on and on about all the legal things and that I was going to be arrested. I kept asking so many questions, I was scared, and they kept going and sounded so professional. I got transferred over to another person and they kept taking about legal matters and if I didn't pay $1000 to lift the warrant, cops would be at my door and arrest me. I told them I don't have that money. They then said we can do $500. Then went on to say," I hear you have a child in the background. What are you going to do when the police come and take you? Your child is going to have to sit with a stranger while your behind bars." I lost it. Crying and sooooooo confused. I kept asking if I can call them back and they all said, "no! If you hang up, we will have no choice but to hand you over to the authorities and you WILL be arrested.You need to pay for what you have done and then you won't be arrested." He kept asking if i had a debit or credit card and I said I can't make that big of purchase without talking to my husband first

I finally begged them and asked if i could hang up and call my husband and he said,"fine. I will be calling back in 30 minutes. If you do not answer, YOU WILL BE ARRESTED." and hung up.

Called my mom bawling and thankfully she told me it was a scam. They have continued to call me and leaving voicemails saying this is your final notice, or else you week be arrested.

I seriously was so upset I was shaking. : (

Received a call that went to voice mail claiming to be Internal Revenue Service, said were issuing a warrant for arrest for tax law violations/tax evasion.

I called them back and spoke to a person who said there was $4256 underpaid on past tax returns and they will be opening a criminal investigation, issuing an arrest warrant and will come to my home and take me to jail (threatening/scare tactics). I then told this person I suspected this was a scam and would call the IRS myself, and asked him repeatedly what was the purpose of the call and what did they want me to do. At that point the person hesitated and I hung up.

I have received several calls left on voicemail advising me it is final notice. The IRS has filed a lawsuit against me & I need to call them. I called the number 816 399-5120, the number on caller id & left on voicemail. They verified my name & postal code. I answered yes. I then said I didn't believe it was IRS. He said yes he was, and I needed to write down his agent id. I had an appointment to go to & said I would have to call back. When I called back later I said I didn't believe he was IRS, he said "Then why did you call back?" then he hung up.

The scammer said they were from the IRS and I had a error in last years taxes. The fine was $3000 and if I didn't pay today they would freeze my accounts and I would go to jail for 90 days. I told them about due process and the IRS would never freeze my accounts and I would go to court first before anything like this would happen. They hung up on me.

My case number was AV3674X00H

The guys ID number was ML047856

His last name was Villard

This was a recorded call claiming to be from the IRS. Recorded caller mentioned that there were 4 serious allegations against me and they would be contacting the local "cops" if I didn't call them back. This is a complete scam. Any legitimate organization would never threaten someone over the phone, especially with a recorded call, that they would be contacting law enforcement of any kind.

This was a robotic call. The voice said we were being sued by the IRS and must call the number given immediately.

The phone number given was 786-765-0258.

The caller ID indicated that the call was from Homestead FL.

My mother was the victim of this crime while I was at school. They contacted her claiming that there was a warrant out for her arrest because of past taxes that had not been payed. They told her specific information about where she lived and they knew that she was divorced. They told her that if she payed $3000 right now, that the warrant would go away. They convinced my mother to go to Target and buy $3000 worth of gift cards. No employees at the Target stopped her or inquired as to why she was doing this. She then sent them all of the money by reading the gift card codes to them. They had her on the line for 5 hours straight. This was when I arrived home. I began questioning my mother, but she was too distraught to listen to me. The scammers then told my mother that she needed to give them more money and that they would call back the next day to get it. After hearing this, I told my mother to hang up. I explained to her that it was a scam. We were both very upset, as the $3000 was gone, and my mother felt like she had been held hostage.

We filed a police report, contacted Target, and called my mother's bank, but nobody was able to help us. We will not be getting that money back. The scammers called back the next day multiple times. We attempted to ignore them, but after several calls, I answered. I told them not to call back and they haven't called back since.
