repeat calling indicating they are from the IRS and even give out badge numbers (Badge 12586, Nicole Williams) indicating that you are under legal investigation for tax fraud - obvious scammers - do not give out any information

I was called by a 202-677-8166 number, they left a voicemail and I called back. I then spoke with a woman with what seemed to be an Indian accent who identified as officer Nicole Williams with badge #12586. She stated I had three audits from 2012-2016 and that the IRS had initiated legal proceedings and a warrant for my arrest. She stated I owed in taxes and legal fees $8,140. When I asked her several times why I hadn't received any thing in the mail she stated they had tried to deliver it twice and both attempts failed which is why they were calling. She then informed me I hadn't filed a Form 1022 when I moved (there is no IRS Form 1022) after she gave me an old address from several years ago. As I kept asking her questions and asking her to repeat what it was that I was accused of, the line went dead.

I had the same thing happen to me today and they gave me the identical information that you shared here. I was so upset. Can't believe people take advantage of others this way.

Received call from 202-677-8166. I called back to see what the scam was. Gentlemen answered with a slight Indian accent. After he asked me my name, I hung up.

I have been getting these on and off for a year. Anyone knowing my tax situation knows we pay significantly higher than typical Americans and handle everything professionally. They claim to have Anglo names but have Indian-Asian accents.. I listened to the whole routine the first time. They want to keep you on the line and have you wire money to them. They are careful to avoid a wire-fraud charge by not asking for certain types of information. They can be convincing, particularly to someone who is not familiar with how the IRS operates. I visited the IRS and discussed this and the first thing the actual IRS said was that they communicate via mail and do not call.

Got two automated calls accusing me of tax fraud and saying government filed lawsuit against me. I knew it was a scam but called back. Indian sounding woman with a lot of background noise. When she asked me my name I began questioning her and then told her I know irs doesn’t leave automated calls and correspondence would be by mail. She hung up on me.

Recorded call. We have been trying to reach you unsuccessfully for months for fraud. This is a final attempt to collect a debt. Call us immediately at 202 677 8166 again you better call or we will sue. I paid my taxes yesterday via the web. I assume they got my info from there. Sad.

Automated message on my voicemail. Said a lawsuit was filed in my name by the federal government. It told me to call this number. I know the IRS only corresponds by mail. I didn’t call them.

Just received a voicemail from this number saying they're filing a fraud lawsuit against me. Called back and a woman said she was an officer of the irs fraud department, gave me a badge number and asked for my name. I laughed and said no thanks and she hung up on me. :)

Got repeated calls saying they were from the IRS and were filing a lawsuit "in my name". Blocked the number after that. Definitely a scam.

The IRS doesn't call you. They send a letter. ANY call that claims to be the IRS is a scam.

Phone number called me twice and left a number to call back. After the second call, I called back. After the woman told me I had reached the IRS she said I was being sued by the IRS. As soon as I said "The IRS doesn't sue people for taxes" she hung up.

Received this call today and of course was scared. Googled this site and found that other people have received similar calls. This is definitely a scam. The IRS is aware of the calls but it appears they haven't figured out how to catch the scammers. The Arizona Attorney General's office recommends that these calls be reported to IRS on their web page.
