Received call saying they were calling from IRS fraud division and that I would be arrested if I did not respond immediately. It gave the listed phone number above. Even though I answered the phone, I could tell it was a recorded message.

I’ve gotten this call a few times. Usually they say they will "report me to tge local cops" and this time "I and my property were under surveillance". I called back this time and the line was a Google Voice number and the person who answered said they were an agent with the IRS. I called the police and they said the IRS doesn’t call people and wouldn’t use Google Voice.

Victim Location 75051

Type of a scam Tax Collection

Said they were from IRS and I had a Warrant out for my arrest for making a fraudulent State Tax claim. Said Please call Telephone #029965164 wherever that may be.

So I did not respond because I am retired and even when I worked I didn’t claim on my W-2 tax forms any state taxes because Texas does not require me to pay state taxes. So I have never had to claim any state taxes on my W-2 forms to make a fraudulent claim. I have received this same call about 4 times over about 3 years with the same accusation. IRS does not use this method to contact a person anyway. As for as I know this is as accurate as I could be for this is a message left on my answering machine and a little hard to understand but enough to know it was a scam.

This is the transcript of the voicemail left on my phone. I do not answer unknown calls for this very reason. I am also attaching a copy of the actual voicemail to this report. “Officially a final notice from the IRS. The nature and the purpose of this call is to inform you that we have received legal petition notice concerning a tax fraud against you. So before this matter goes to the Federal claims court house or before you get arrested, please call immediately on our department number 804-800-7004. Make sure you call us as soon as possible! Again this is Officer Steve Parker from the internal revenue services.”

Received a call today. It was a recording which started by saying "This call is officially a final notice from the IRS … " at which point I hung up. The call log gave the number 1-210-607-8230 and the name "Janice Stickle." Below, you require an answer to "Did the scammer attempt to take money?" I was forced to say yet, though I hung up before hearing the entire pitch.

I received a phone call on 9/29/2017 from the listed number (above) on my cell phone and was unable to answer it. The message left stated, "to inform you that the IRS is filing a lawsuit against you. To get more information about this case file, please call immediately on our department number 803-626-1417. I repeat, 803-626-1417. Thank you". I knew IRS would not contact me this way so I googled the number which is registered as a landline phone in Rock Hill, SC.

This number called and claims to be with the IRS. They said a warrant was issued for my arrest and no bail would be set. And they were moving forward with the lawsuit against me. First of all, I always get a refund back on my taxes so I don’t owe the IRS any money. When I told them I was taping their call they said "F you ma’am" to me and hung up. This is the second time it’s happened to me in 2 years. These people are crazy!

With several more attempts, some failing with reception then the call being picked up with no response I decided to contact the IRS but could not speak to someone directly. Spoke to someone at this office informing me of this search engine….While entering this information I have received another call with the same message using the same number. 1-501-254-7614

Phone call from an individual (didn’t speak English where it could be understood). Told me he was with the IRS and I was subject to an audit with severe penalty. This shook me up somewhat. Spoke with the ScamPulse.com and without telling them my entire story, they confirmed it was a scam. I would advise anyone that has had this happen to them to do periodic credit scores on themselves.

I had a voicemail, when I called they started telling me that the IRS was filing a lawsuit against me for fraudulent reporting over the past five years. They would have the sheriff’s officers come to my door, hand cuff me, arrest me and detain me for 72 hours.

The way out was to pay as much of the back taxes as I could and they would send a cancellation code to the sheriff’s office to cancel the arrest.

The two names they used were: Miles Silvas IRM 7275 and Brian Bartosky IRM Badge #71569.

Received a call at 11:00 am on September 2 from phone# 509-492-5018 threatening a lawsuit and that it was from the IRS. I redialed the number and a female answered, yet I had difficulty understanding them as they had a heavy foreign accent. I asked the individual for their name, company they worked for, and the country they were calling from. That’s when they began speaking to someone else in a foreign language. I asked for someone who could speak better English.

They said they were located in Washington, DC, and worked for the IRS, yet the area code and phone is listed as a landline in Pasco, WA (see below).

They hung up when I told them I was reporting this call to the ScamPulse.com and they would hearing from the authorities soon.
