I just received a call from this number. The man was clearly not American and claimed to be from the IRS threatening to take us to court and get aggressive. SCAM
Called and said Irs is suing me
I am respectfully and strongly requesting that you contact me regarding this matter since I have exhausted all of my resources and can't get them to stop.
Man (voice sounded maybe from India) told me to go to WalMart to pick up money from a grant provided by the U.S. Gov't. Gave me a "code" to use, he stated I had to show a picture I.D. I was told I could use tthe money for anything I wished ...I don't even like WalMarts!
Always US area codes.
SCAM - DO NOT FALL VICTIM rec'd message at end of July stating that after trying to get in touch with me (which isn't true - at least not legitimately by mail), this is last attempt and IRS is filing a law suit against me.
What a crock these calls are! 7/23/2015 Final notice from IRS (Internal Revenue Service) Filing a lawsuit again you. For more info phone. xxxx
Received call from this number and am listed on the no call list!!!! Don't understand why I still get calls this is the third number that are scam or unknown . I do not answer but it is annoying to still get these calls!!
They have been calling constantly.
Says going to file lawsuit against me and collector will come to my house in next 24 hours, but no one shows up. Tried to call back, but call fails.
"This is the IRS- You will be arrested and your nuts cut off, etc........."
I got the exact same call just now. My heart is still racing. I called the # back and it was disconnected. I'm gonna start calling foreigners and demanding money from them or threaten them with court proceedings. I'm fed up with this kind of bs from them.
"Hartman regarding a tax fraud against your name. Ignoring this will be an intentional attempt to avoid an initial appearance before magistrate judge or a grand jury for a federal criminal offense so before this matter goes to the federal claims court house before you get arrested. Kindly call us back on our number as soon as possible. The number to reach us is 202-738-4446 let me repeat the number is 202-738-4446. Hope to hear from you soon before the charges pressed against you thanks."
Received a call saying - automated voice - there was a lawsuit pending and to call them immediately. Wondered if it was a scam. Seems the IRS would call in person or leave a toll free number.
I told them yesterday to stop calling, and have told them three times today to stop calling.
I told her I was not interested and to take me off their list.
I have checked with Verizon wireless and it is not them, they and a check of the internet, report a common scam being ran with similar details.
Highway robbery, last week call they wanted my checking account information or any plastic card. This week I won a grant of nine grand... How can you win a grant? Well you first go to tbn.org , then you get the truth that we are in the last days were men will become lovers of self... Don't be deceived by this company... Sounds like a high interest loan done by lies...
my research has shown this number belongs to family foreclosure - we do not own a home
They call every day "congratulations you have won a prize" blah blah
Left a message: It was a man's voice telling me he was from the Treasury Department of the IRS and that a legal law suit was being filed against my name and to call back before any legal actions are taken for non-compliance. When I googled the number it showed that many people have received this call or a variation of it. Ridiculous..
Never identifies what card company is calling.
NO MESSAGE, JUST THE NUMBER.
Unknown caller, female, called to verify my name, age, marital status, state and zip code. gave 202-738-1426 for $9K gvt. grant being offered to me from U.S. Treasury for no criminal record, no BK. They have my info from a survey I took about 6mos ago. Gave Grant conf# and told me to call. They asked if I wanted funds trans to bank, visa card, or western union cash. Gvt request funds be used for personal needs, nothing illegal.
Tried to say i win a grant for 4'500. When I called the number I got no answer.Said that it was government. Try to see if you would give out your bank information.
I did not answer because I did not recognize the number or company.
Call shows up on caller ID.
Apparently an automated call.
Another credit card scam. They always say push "2" to be removed from our list, but it never does any good. They just keep calling.
the first time they called, I searched the number-web says it is a scam.
I got a call too today saying that I qualified for $7K grant money because I pay my taxes and all this other bull. Had my name correct but not my address. Said if I go down to the local walmart they will release my funds after I provide my Grant ID Number of JM9003 but right before I go into the Walmart I am to call Alex Gendre at 253-843-6189 because he is the right person to release my funds. What a bunch of crock. And that number for Alex Gender is always busy. I called just to see what this guy was going to say and then I was going to screw with him. Bunch of freaking losers. WTH.
no message on my answering machine, hang up when my ans machine answered no name on caller id only "Anonymous" MAKE THEM STOP !
Tried to sell me a cruise to the Bahamas.
This is a SCAM! Lady from DHHS for the federal gov't told me I qualified for a $5,000 grant and to call another number to receive a western union money transfer when I wouldn't give her my debit or checking account number. Both phone numbers were female and had heavy accents....nice try but I was not born yesterday.
Offered to get me a grant. Since the caller refused to ID themselves, I will not phone them back.
She said I was eligible for grant money from US government. I was suspicious that this was phishing, so I asked for a call back number without giving her any of my information. She gave me a grant approval number and the call back number of 202-738-1247. When I looked up the number on the internet, it appears it is associated with scamming.
I just received this call also but from someone claiming to be Mark Phillips with U.S. Treasury Office. He also had a thick Indian accent. Did not call him back
It is some refinance scheme.
I have requested to be taken off of their list other times.
FL location internet suggests Nigerian scam?
Was told grant $ 7000 .. Thought it was about the grant $ I receive from my college. Sounded fishy so I googled. Sounds like I was right ! Was told to call this # for federal grant dept. I will not be calling it and will now proceed to report to federal gov as it is a crime to impersonate the Feds!
Called concerning free grant money, of which they said I qualified for. They gave me a call back # and a Grant file # ef822.
Yes Venesa Falis, I am suppose to call you back at Wallgreen's before I purchase a Green Dot card. Well, I am not going to call you back and I have the State Police monitoring my phone number in case you call back. You remember me, my APPROVAL # IS MF7371. Whoever you people are at the National Mall near the Pentagon, are very close to ending your scams.
I received a call today from 202-738-158. The caller stated they were from the Federal Government and that I was selected among 1500 people to receive $9000 in grant money to spend how I chose. They wanted me to go to a Money Gram store and put up a $250 security deposit. IT IS A SCAM!!!! SCAM!!! SCAM!!! No money is required by the US government when receiving grant money. I called the number back and the same person answered the phone. I told the person "shame on you for lying and stealing from people". I told them that what they do is vile and despicable. The person told me that "I was a failure in life" and hung up in my face. NO government employee in a legitimate position would EVER speak to its customer like that. SCAM>>>SCAM>>>SCAM!!!!
This is a scam. I received the call and was left a prerecorded message it was the IRS, and to call back.If it was the IRS, they would leave a 1800 callback.
This company called three times in one day.
I have gotten this call twice. It is a recorded message saying it is the last time they will try to reach us about the IRS filing a law suit against us. The number to call back is 202-239-6007. I think it is a scam.
These are scams, clearly. If anyone calls you saying your selected for a grant and want the last 4 digits of your social and to call back when you got a PREPAID credit card... ROFL you deserve to lose your money if you fall for this one. i mean cmon...
says I have a Grant for 9700 dollars
I received a call informing me I qualified to receive 9,000 in my checking account or savings account, debit/credit card. But before receiving the funds into my account I need to drive to Wal-Mart, some store and dial 202-580-8227 in the parking lot. He tell me what to do, I need to pay 200.00 for transfer fee. I told him I didn't have 200.00 nor did I no anyone....he was very persistent in asking me to contact friends or family to get the 200.00. If anyone should call you from a 202 area code from district of Columbia DO NOT buy into that mess. It's a SCAM. THIS SHOULD BE STOPPED AND THEY SHOULD BE ARRESTED.
