This is some type of loan SCAM! Recording requesting that I "contact a federal agent right away" at 717-220-5925 to resolve this issue. I don't have any federal loans. Tried to call both of the numbers back and they're disconnected.

This number called, 567-201-4307, and stated I needed to call 7172205925 to speak to a federal agent. The number is disconnected and the original number that called never rings when you call it back. Block this number. It's a scam.

I’ve received two today..
949-304-2675. Told me to call
717-220-5925 for a federal agent.
First a man, then a woman. Never mentioned a name.
These folks are barking up the wrong tree...

I got a call yesterday, October 24 at 10:29EST with the same message. I didn't call back immediately. I read this morning on IRS.gov that there are several phishing attempts and call scams going around. They NEVER call you to ask for payment. Plus the number has been disconnected.

Known IRS SCAM. Automated message not personally addressed to my name, with message of "Ignoring this will be an additional second attempt to avoid initial appearance before magistrate, judge, or the grand jury for a federal criminal offense.", etc. I Google searched phone numbers 7172205925 / 717-220-5925 with minimal public results, but google searched the message, which reveals it's a scam. Did not return call.
