Something to do with Google.
Sited death & injury to senior citizens and was selling personal emergency medical alert system
second call today,one call yesterday
Said he was with the IRS and that I was going to be arrested. I had mistakes in my taxes. I could go to prison for up to 5 years. Wanted me to come up with 5000.00 over the phone. Thank GOD it's a scam.
she said she was from the IRS and to call this number due to serious allegations being made. Very thick middle Eastern accent, ended call by saying "God bless". huh??
KEEPS CALLING ME AT MY PLACE OF EMPOLYEMENT AND SAID HE WILL CALL 1000 TIMES UNTIL TAKE CARE OF A CASE HE HAS FILED AGAINST ME. I TOLD HIM I HAVE CONTACTED THE FBI AND HE JUST LAUGHS.............
BIG TIME SCAM!!!!!! Don't fall for it! They are most likely from India, just judging by their accents. They 'claim' they're calling from "1111 constitution avenue" in DC (where the real IRS building is). But they're actually using a fake number to make you believe they're calling from the states. I knew it was fraud from the start!!
Called and left a voicemail but I don't remember getting a missed call so didn't listen to it until a couple weeks after I had actually received it. It told me this was my final notice, as they had been trying to get ahold of me because the IRS was filing a lawsuit against me. It was a female voice who didn't give a "name" because it was a robot. It also never gave mine. Then gave me the (202) 241 8445 number to call back for more information. I didn't call the number, I looked it up instead and found this. I'm am a 19 year old female, and I find this very disturbing to have been targeted.
Individual with heavy accent claims to be calling with US Dept of Treasury. Do not return this call-this is a scam.
Same as mentioned from previous post. Caller has a heavy Indian accent and claims to be Matthew Brian. "Hi, this message is intended for XX. My name is Matthew Brian calling from state investigation dept. The reason for calling is to make you aware that a legal case has been filed under your name, social, and physical address under federal investigation. I want you to give me a call back at 202-241-8198. I repeat, it is 202-241-8198. Now, if i don't get a call back from you, then forcefully, we will need to download the case into the courthouse and the officers will be in those steps. Thank you and have a great day.
I just received the exact message today, 10/29/14 3:39P
Said their was some type of legal action against me either by my name or social security number. That I needed to return his call. Did not leave a company name or name of person calling. Have received this message several time.
Today: 2014 October 29 Weds Caller ID was "Roselle, IL 630-924-919152" but, the female computer generated voice wanted me to call: 202/864-1679 "IRS" called threatening me with a lawsuit this morning at 5:54am PST saying "this is the final notice". I would bet everything I have "he/they" are connected to aliases: Craig Miller, Jack Martin, Denny Smith from the IRS who have also called from these following numbers since August this year (2014): 202/461-3236, 202/241-2553, 202/241-2642... Every time a live person is in the other side, they sound Indian/Pakistani. Before it used to be what seemed like one male calling numerous times.. then, recently, he/they "got wise" or so he/they think and have started using a female computer-generated voice leaving messages about "this is the IRS and this is your final warning to call us or we will file a lawsuit against you, etc...". I just called 202/864-1679 b/c the message said to "please call as soon as possible, etc...", a man (not the same voice I've gotten used to b/c he kept calling so many times before) with an Indian/Pakistani accent answered "IRS". This time there was that background noise you hear when calls are outsourced overseas. I simply told the man "please do not call this number again" and without the usual spiel about lawsuit/etc, he also, simply said "ok" and the call ended.. Now, come on, if this isn't a scam, I don't know what is! I knew it. He just proved it. If it really was the IRS, first, the IRS would send a letter in the mail. Secondly, this call would not have ended like this. We have a case of "Dumb Criminals" that still remains to be solved. PS: Google all these numbers and you will see other people with similar experiences...
Called for me, supposedly, regarding (oooooohhhh!) "OFFICIAL LEGAL ACTION," which would be taken, forthwith, against me....so it would be HIGHLY ADVISABLE that I call him IMMEDIATELY to stop these ERRONEOUS actions from being pursued. Furthermore, AHEM, if I did NOT think it was important that I call him, or in the event I had something better to do (such as picking lint from my navel) I should have a LEGAL REPRESENTATIVE contact him in my stead, as he could not guarantee what events might transpire were that he never to receive that call. What a JOKE, he could BARELY SPEAK ENGLISH, however, I could see an honest or elderly person (someone less savvy) as being frightened into returning his call. Reported to The Attorney General in my West Coast State.
Said he was from Dept of Legal Affairs. Guessed scammer right away.
Told us they were calling from the IRS Tax audit departmentt and they have a claim for a lawsuit against my husband. that he fraudulently filed tax returns from 2009 to 2013. Told me the cops were coming in 30 minutes to arrest me and seize our house and our car.
Say from the irs
I too got a call today saying the person at this number was being sued by the IRS... Scared the heck out of me, I quickly checked my mail and nothing. I figured they would first reach out by mail. I then called my tax accountant who has not gotten back to me. I usually spot the scams, but this one scared me.
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.
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.
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.
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...
