Left a voice message stating that I was under investigation for a crime and said something about my physical address. He also said I needed to call him back.
When I returned the phone call from "IRS agent Julie Smith", the guy told me (in a heavy Indian accent) that I owed $4,481 in back taxes from 09/10 that I willfully withheld from the United States government. He then told me the IRS has filed a four count affidavit against me and my wife. He tried yelling at me while reading the affidavit, telling me if I interrupt him again he will file the affidavit and an IRS agent will be at my door within the hour to arrest me and take me to the courthouse. These scumbags are the type of people you wish you could reach through the phone lines for.
Stentorian-voiced female left voicemail and said she was Julie Smith of IRS, that I must return her call at 202-241-7332 before they take action against me in this time-sensitive matter (unspecified).
She said she was the IRS and had an extremely urgent matter and you had to call back. There was several indicators in her message that made it obvious that it was a scam. I called it was something completely else! No liar Julie.
Got a recorded message from this number today. Apparently, the IRS has a "lawsuit" against me based upon my "social files." Absolutely a scam. I called the 202 number, and left a message that this was NOT a government number and knew that this was a scam. Wonder if I'll get additional calls. The IRS would NEVER contact anyone by phone or email regarding a lawsuit or claim.
He called me from this number saying I owe money to the IRS and there is an officer at my house to arrest me if I don't pay now. I knew right away it was a scam, since he had no information about me other than my phone number and my old address. Trying to get credit card info....such of dumb a**.... DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY INFO EVEN IF HE YELLS AT YOU!!!!!
Automated message claiming to be Officer Julie Smith of the IRS and saying do not "disregard this message and do return the call before we take any action against you. Goodbye and take care."
Thanks for all the comments - now it was my turn :(
This guy called and left a message claimed that he's from the IRS with an arest warrant for me. He has an Indian accent which doesn't match his name.
IRS again, if only we would invest our energies to stop this we can create a whole new workforce full of losers who have way too much time on their hands. Send them to the prisons to educate the convicts.
Called and immediately started in a very clipped voice that this was IRS crime investigation unit and arrest warrant for me at this address. for fraud Since he didn't even ask to clarify who answered the phone, this came across as preposterous. I hung up, since it seemed completely unrealistic. Yes, it was an indian type accent.
Guy with a very thick accent and broken English purporting to be Officer Michael Brown of the IRS Criminal Investigation Service left an urgent message saying I was being investigated and needed to call back right away. Totally hilarious if not annoying. Guy probably picked up the Michael Brown name too from a headline for the Ferguson teen killing story
repeated calls re: debt collection for someone who we do not know and who does not live here.
"jim smith" with "federal grant dept" has grant for 9k+ but needs a filing fee of $200 loaded on a prepaid greendot card first o_O
Recorded message about a home security system
Called saying they were the IRS not once but 9 or 10 times and left messages telling me to call back because of something ilegal I had done. Was not American calling.
Same as above. Thanks for the info, especially about the attempt to get your credit card number. I agree that IRS would never call you like this. Somehow they must be routing these calls through DC and you think they could be shut down.
keeps calling and I am unable to speak to a person all the time...they say they will take me off..apparently this does not happen..
Same thing foreign voice left a message saying irs investigation...awful
Indian gentleman named Aaron Roger from the Department of Legal Affairs wanted my husband to call him back regarding a 'legal issue'. Aaron advised that a retained attorney make the call. Ended the message with 'have a blessed day and God bless'. Scam indeed.
I have warned them to stop contacting me about their solicitation several times and they just don't stop. Thank you.l
I have recieved multiple daily calls from this company for months
I have asked them to stop calling me 10 times. Today, they called 3 times.
i even talked to the manager - he said he purchased the lead and that we were not on the do not call list - told him that was a lie.
scam. said the police and warrant was going to arrest me in 30 minutes unless i give them $998. he insisted i go to the bank right away and he will stay on the phone with me the entire process. i am not allow to contact any third party, including the police. such low lives, stop these people.
Have asked repeatedly to STOP Calling and Will Not.
first time call company selling rate reduction plans for credit card companys
Credit card interest rate reduction scam. Repeated calls after being asked to stop calling.
Caller claimed to be IRS and threatened pending legal action. Heavy Indian accent and spoke very fast nearly unintelligible. When I called back the number was unassigned by Magic Jack. This stupid dick is a rank amateur, nice try A-hole.
automated, no live voice to request number removal
Have recieved several calls from this number referencing a legal action regarding my mailing address. Caller with thick foreign accent id's self as an "Officer" from the "Federal Investigation Department" and stresses need to call back or "legal actions" will be taken! It ends with a warning to not disregard this message! Very alarming stuff!
You know, it seems like when I added my name to this list, I get more calls now. Maybe these guys use your list to find people to call?
When you Google the number, many complaints about unwanted calls from this number appear. Though not a "senior" myself, I live in a 55+ community
Got the same recorded message from "Agent Julie Smith" with call back number. Number went straight to voicemail. DIdn't leave message.
We get these calls from Cardmember Services very often, about once a week. I hang up after a few seconds.
We get one or two every day...
Voice message ""Notify you that IRS is filing a lawsuit against you. So before your case gets downloaded into the court house. Call back on our department number 2022418301. I repeat 2022418301. Goodbye. God bless you." ".. FRAUD! 10/14/14
Unsolicited phone call
this number was on an email - saying they were from state attorneys office. spelling & grammar was so wrong.
This was a robotic voice suggesting that the IRS was about to do some nasty things to me, a total scam. DO NOT RETURN THE CALL.
this number calls every third day at various hours and never leaves a message.
They said they were the IRS and are filing a law suit against me.
This company calls me several times a day and does not leave a message.
Have received numerous calls from this number. I have never picked the phone up and they never leave a message on the answering machine. My husband just picked up the phone and a foreign voice hung up when he asked what they were calling about.
They keep calling.
Calls early in the mornings, a recording, indicating the call is from IRS. Stating that I should not ignor the call and return it before actions are taken.
They are calling to get me to apply for a loan.
Called at 5:16am on Saturday morning and to say we were ticked is putting it nicely. Can\'t believe there isn\'t something that can be done about this scam artist. Taking our phone off the hook during the night from now on... he did this to us twice now at about the same time in the morning but won\'t happen a third time.
The message was something about mortgages and predatory loans.
IRS Tax Fraud" investigation, India accent with a hint of British, "James Anderson needs me to return his call the VERY SECOND I receive his call. Again my number is 202-241-2890. He needs me or my attorney to call and if I do not the only thing he can do is wish me good luck as the situation unfolds on me."
Male caller left VM identified himself as Nick Miller or Walker. Very heavy accent and kind of sounded like a recording or voice was somehow altered. Said he was from the Dept of Legal Affairs and he was investigating a criminal matter and my name came up. Requested a call back if I would like to settle this matter. Left a # to call back - 202-241-8209. I called it back a few days later and the recording says this number has not yet been assigned to a Magic Jack Customer. Clearly a scam!!
