Type of a scam Government Grant

Received a call from 323-741-3873 (showed up as a CA call on my caller id). The man said that I would receive $9000 from the government- US Treasury Department and all I had to do was go to CVS (drug store) and buy a $250 gift card and call him back with the card information. Once I did this, I would be sent my $9000.

I know this is a scam, as the government will never ask us to make a payment, especially with a prepaid gift card!!!

Type of a scam Phishing

They said they were from the US Treasury Department and needed me to verify who I was over the phone. They already had my name and old address. I started to ask questions about why I was being contacted and they would hang up the phone. I called several times and every time they would hang up. I spoke with at least 2 different people, one being a man and the other a woman. They both had a thick Indian accents like they were being outsourced from India or from somewhere else. The electronic voice message gives me a case # and says I need to contact them because of a Federal criminal offense. The message goes on to say to contact them at the number provided 1-202-558-2351 or else charges will be brought against me.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

I was left a message on voice-mail to call back 904-236-4141, the US Treasury Department, stating it was urgent that I call back. The message regarded overdue taxes owed. An arrest warrant would be issued as it was a federal crime if I ignored this call. I called back. Officer Kerwin Watson, badge number 98720, answered. My taxes of years 2009 - 2013 were audited, that miscalculations were found, and that I owed $5850. I was told I needed to settle this either "inside court or outside of court". If I lost in court, there would be a $20,000 penalty added. If I wanted to handle this out of court, I needed to speak to another person in the Auditing Dept. I was transferred to Officer Debbie Watson, who said I could pay $1,000 today as the first payment. She offered to start at $500 today instead when I told her I would talk to my attorney and would pay nothing today. She told me she would have a warrant issued, and in 45 minutes I would be arrested. Both parties were foreign -- I had difficulty understanding their pronunciations of several words.

My voicemail carrier automatically blocked the call as potential spam and transcribed the message. Here is the text..

"I am calling you from the legal affairs at the US treasury department my badge number is 1245. The nature and the purpose of this call is regarding an enforcement action which has been executed by the US treasury department regarding a tax fraud against your name. Ignoring this will be an intentional attempt to avoid initial appearance before a magistrate judge or a grand jury for federal criminal offense so before this matter goes to federal claims court house or before you get arrested. Kindly call us back on our number as soon as possible. The number to reach us is 415-619-5520. Let me repeat the number is 415-619-5520. Hope to hear from you for the charges are pressed against you.

A person called from (718) 509-3060 and left a message on our answering machine. She claimed to be from the Federal government, office of tax fraud enforcement, a department of the Federal US Treasury. She gave a badge number and said that failure to return the call could be considered a form of Federal tax evasion. If we didn't call back immediately we'd be in danger of being arrested and taken to court in front of a Federal Magistrate court/judge.

When I did a reverse phone number look-up, this phone number comes up as a telemarketer. I submitted a complaint. There were already several complaints of the same nature showing for this phone number. The phone number shows as coming from New York on the reverse phone # look-up. It also shows several other phone numbers associated with this scam.

Received a message saying that I needed to call back Steve Modden. He had a middle eastern accent. He said to call 310 363 7599 to straighten up this matter, as this was the last attempt and a Second Offense. He said to call right away. I'm pretty sure this is a scam as I don't know of anything related to the US Treasury Department. I've never seen any documents nor have I ever been in trouble.

I asked him how much money he felt i owed him and he stated he was not sure of the total amount at this time.

Fake US Treasury Agent left two phone messages in a threatening tone (caller had a foreign accent) demanding that we call him back due to being under federal investigation. He threatened we would face a Grand Jury for failure to comply. He also implored us to "help him, help us". It was an obvious scam. The phone number used was 347-418-0597. We did not respond to the scam other than writing this report.
