SCAM! make sure to go into your bank and change your info. they could have hacked into your phone.
I just got this call, and he didn't ask for anything. Just threated me about getting arrested . I felt like he was trying to keep me on the phone. I couldn't make out what he was saying, his voice was all muffled.

Claimed to be "Officer Marcus Brown" from the IRS, stating that misconduct and fraudulent activity were found on my taxes. Stated if i didn't return the call, a warrant would be issued for my arrest. This is a scam and should be reported to both the IRS and FTC.

This number called me this morning claiming to be the IRS. After 47 times of returning the call I finally got the man to speak to me. As he threatened to have me imprisoned for tax fraud I cordially explain to him that I am the deputy director of the state of Kansas Internal Revenue Service auditing team and that I am tracking his location through IP address on the cellular telephone that he is linking to to call me. His reaction was the most comical thing I have heard in years. What a crybaby amateur. The reason they can't be stopped is because they are not currently in the continental United States. Kind of makes you wish they sold nuclear warheads in the gun section of Walmart.

Office Jack from IRS called and threatened with immediate arrest by sending local law enforcement unless I took immediate action to cooperate.

How do these scumbags from third world countries get our private information?

I know the answer. Thank you Corporate America (credit card companies, telephone companies, etc) for selling us out for your greed.

I got a call from them this morning. I read here what everyone said, so I called them back. Definitely was a Indian man. He would not give me his name or tell me who I had called (even though the voice message said IRS when they called me). He then asked my name which I did not give & he asked if he was speaking to my teenage daughter & used her first & last name. ABSOLUTELY not the IRS.

We found that there was a fraud and misconduct on your tax. Which you are hiding from the federal government this needs to be rectified immediately so do return the call as soon as you receive the message the number is 202-470-0077.
