Victim Location 71486

Type of a scam Identity Theft

Caller did not identify herself, left message to call this number. The number is not recognized by me and upon checking on reverse phone site investigation, it showed it was a residential location on Bass Point (looks like a subdivision area) in Newman Lake area of Washington state. This seemed very odd to me. I am fairly cautious of outside calls and if this is a possible scam, would like to see charges or some repercussions for any illegal activity.

I was told there was a criminal lawsuit against me and there was a warrant for my arrest. He was foreign and I could not understand a word he said. I asked that he put someone on the phone I could understand. He put another foreign man on the phone who I could understand a little better. He explained that there were discrepancies with my taxes from 2012-2017. He said his name was Albert Brown (yeah right, an Albert Brown from India?). His patch ID number is GS21065 and my case number is CF762H3. They told me the legal charges against me would cost $2,376. I told them I was googling their phone number and immediately it popped up that this was an IRS scam. Very disrespectful and rude. Just hang up. By the way they did leave a message.

I revived a call from this number and the message stated that I had several allegations pending against me and if I didn’t call back, I would have legal actions pushed against me. Calling the number back, I find out it is for the IRS which was not mentioned in the message. I have never received a letter from the IRS saying I owe money, so until that happens I will not cooperate with this scam. Explaining this to the man on the phone, he then hung up on me. After calling back a second time, I was connected to a lady that said she received the same call. Not sure how the lady and I got connected, but I explained the entire scam to her in hopes she doesn’t make the mistake of giving her information away. I hope someone does something about these people. I have been calling the number back non-stop trying to annoying the hell out of them. 🙂

I received a call from this indian man who left an automated voicemail about some debt i owed and that i would be arrested if i didn’t call back and pay the amount to him. when he answered the phone i asked him what service this was. he stated it was the IRS. He then asked me my name. I instead told him that since he has my number he should be able to look up my name and he asked my name again. I called him out as a scammer and he hung up on me. I called back and asked him to answer my question. he repeatedly told me he was not a scammer in broken english. He then hung up again. I called back and told him i was going to report him and he blocked my number so i can no longer dial him. I suggest you get on the phone with him and keep him talking so you can trace his location. otherwise he will hang up and block you so you can’t find him. We never got to the point of how much money i owed. So i’m going to put an amount in the lower box but it is not correct because he never disclosed an amount.Also the postal code is possibly not correct. I just put in a Portland, ME code. That is all the information i have at this time.

They found fraud on tax returns amounting to $5276. Two ways to resolve 1st is to go to court with criminal lawyer cost $6000 , if I lose I. R. S. can collect $50 -60 thousand plus jail time 5 years. The other way is to pay $5276 and they will stop legal action. I asked how to pay, they will send someone to my home, I told him no because I didn’t want neighbors to see it. I said meet me at the city police dept at noon tomorrow. He hung up!

I explained that I don’t have that kind of money so the guy said that I could pay $4,000 right now & then we could set up payment arrangements for the rest. I, again explained that I didn’t have that kind of money. I said I would need to call my husband. They guy was so pushy. He asked if I had a credit card, I said no. Then I remembered that H & R Block did my taxes that year, so I told him that I was going to get in touch with them. The guy said that if we ended the call that the police would be notified. This conversation went on for another hour. Finally, I hung up and called my husband. I was totally freaked out and upset.

I was in bed and received a call on my cell phone it was at 3:03pm yesterday (9-20-16) and I didn’t catch it in time, and I hit recent calls and called it back (484-541-0827). They answered it IRS with a foreign accent, I heard other people talking like in a call center, I said it is awful loud there, and he said we have other agents trying to reach out. I said did someone there call? And they said in order to look it up they needed my name and birthday and the last four digits of my social security number. Before I gave them anything, I asked what it was regarding and they asked if I was given a case number, and that there was probably a claim against me or something if I received a call. They had to look up it, and they asked me for my name and birthdate and I gave it to them. Then, they asked for the last four digits of my social, and at that point, I asked why and they said that’s how they can look it up to see why I received a call. And I said I was uncomfortable with it, I’ll give them the first four. They said they could look it up by that, and I was asking questions the whole time, it’s awful loud there, and if you are the IRS you should have my social. I told them I pay my taxes, and I don’t have any claims or problems. I asked them if the IRS would have had an issue, wouldn’t I have received something in the mail, and they said you’ll be receiving a follow up letter after this call. He said there has to be a case number or lawsuit filed against me, if I received the call, and I said I’m uncomfortable, and then a few moments later he said good news there are no lawsuits pending and click, he hung up.  I called about an hour later at 4:50pm, thinking that I was going to complain to a supervisor or I just wanted to verify that it was the IRS. And someone answered IRS and I said is this the main IRS government number and he said yes, this is the IRS. But it was even louder, I asked to talk to a supervisor, and he said pardon me, pardon me 2-3 times, it was even too loud for him to hear me.

Then they stated that when I called back that they were the IRS and this was in regards to a lawsuit they were filing for tax fraud and tax evasion, and that I owed the IRS $20,000 worth of back taxes. Then I proceeded to ask the lady that I was on the phone with, and then I asked her for my personal information: your address, last four of social, date of birth, where I filed taxes last and she told me she could not disclose any of that information to me. Then I asked her if she would send me some information by the address listed that she could not disclose of what was going on and why I was being charged with tax evasion and tax fraud. And she told me that she would, and that it would be here in 3-5 days, I still have not received anything. Well, I called the same phone number back two days later, and the phone number was disconnected. The next number that called me (914-266-2444) , I couldn’t return it until a few hours later, and their voicemail was the same as the one before, then when I called that number back, the guy kept telling me that he missed me and couldn’t wait to see me.

I was told that I owed $5,664.00 in back taxes because my tax forms were filed incorrectly for the years 2009 – 2014. I asked to speak to her supervisor because she refused to answer my questions. Her supervisor identified himself as Officer Travis Smith. He also spoke with a foreign accent. I asked for their location and was told Washington DC. I then asked for the mailing address so that I could verify the information. He hung up. I called back and spoke to an individual named Officer Jessica Wilson, who also had a foreign accent. I told her that I had spoken to her supervisor, Travis Smith, and he hung up before giving me the mailing address to be used to send the check to. She said that they don’t use the mail to collect the money. When I asked her why not, she hung up.

I received a threatening phone call today, 5/16/16 from one telling me to call him- David Greg at 631-417-4561 immediately to "help" me escape from their 2nd attempt to reach me before I will be forced to go to court for a federal offense. The man threatened that he called as an "enforcement action" by the US treasury. If I ignore the call and do not return the call, I will have to go to court!

I have kept the recording on the phone in the event it can be of use to you. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Here is the voice mail I received. Basically, they told me I would have a warrant out for my arrest due to unpaid taxes. I did a reverse look up of the phone number and it came up as Voxbeam Telecommunications Landline

Amagansett, NY. I asked if that is who they were, they then told me no, and a warrant would be out for my arrest. Below is the message left on my voice mail (wording that was picked up is a little off)

Voicemail from (631) 318-8611

"Hi my name is David Gray and this message is intended to contact you regarding an enforcement action executed by the United States Treasury intending your Sears attention. Ignoring this will be an intentional second attempt to avoid initial appearance before the straight judge or a grand jewelry for a federal criminal offense. My number is 631-318-8611. I repeat it’s 631-318-8611. I’d wife you to cooperate with us and help us to help you. Thank you."

Consumer explained that the woman she spoke with had a thick accent, hard to understand. Phone call started with them leaving a message on the home phone, "they needed to get in touch immediately… representing washington DC… US Treasury". Can’t understand what they were saying, could hear people in the background stating the same information (i.e. pay $5,000- $7,000 in order for the police not to show up). "after we hang up if this matter isn’t resolved, the police will show up. The woman kept saying "well what do you do" consumer said "are you suggesting I pay you now over the phone"? Callers name is Annie Smith Badge# 11536 (this is how she started off the conversation (intimidating). 202-595-9434 called at 10:03 am 10/07/2015
