I also received a call from Carol Richardson with a reference number of 90903 who did not say who she works for. I don't have any tax issues, but I was intrigued that this was a real person and not the robot that threatens to arrest you, so I called back. Their recording says that you are being contacted because you either filled out a form online or called them for help with your IRS tax situation. I pressed 1 to have my number removed. The woman who answered would not answer any questions and said their only job is to remove phone numbers. She did tell me that the company she represents is Hurricane Tax in Los Angeles. I looked them up online and they have a different phone number - 844-829-2494

I explained the events and asked the woman if her company does this. I even explained that "Carol" is using the same reference number. The woman did not ask me any questions - not what phone number I called, not if I had actually filled out a form or called them for help. She explained how their service works, and basically that if you have ever been on a list with the IRS for being late on your taxes, you are on their list. So their rationale is definitely a lie. She did not seem concerned that they use the same reference number for every person. She simply told me that she would tell her boss that the woman was rude.

Got a call and message from this number. It's from "Carol Richardson" who claims I have to call back about back taxes and changes to policy. Gave reference code 90903 and told me to call back 866-519-6696. If you look up the 866 number, many people received the same message but calling from different numbers.

Carol Richardson today, Linda Rogers two weeks ago. I’ve received at least 4 calls from this same woman with different names from different numbers. Sometimes it’s tax debt, sometimes student loans, sometimes unsecured debt. I hope the authorities discover her and her organization and they spend years in prison for scamming the naive out of money.

Exact same transcript as previous callers. Carol Richardson. Calling in reference to 90903 about a tax debt with the new tax laws in place. Need to clear the debit. TOTAL SCAM!

I had the same call this morning with the same reference number. I know I don't owe any taxes so I ignored it but it's insane that the scammers are trying to get so savvy. She sounds really professional but she didn't say my name so that was the first red flag for me (she sounded way too professional to not address me professionally by my name).

Carol Richardson called and gave info about a "delinquent tax matter", and to call her back at 866-519-6696, with a ref #90903. All so professional sounding, but I have zero tax liabilities.
