I am an attorney and many of clients are getting these calls.I wanted give your few tips. IRS/FBI has a local office in your state. So if you are in TX, why is NY office calling If they do call, it's always blocked IDIRS or FBI NEVER calls. They send letters or summons. They have no way of obtaining you cell phone number.Believe it or not, so many people have paid them. I don't think they are a group of Indians only. When I call on behalf of my clients, I have heard Eastern European accent, asian accent too. They will be very very rude to you and try to intimidate you. tell 'em to F*** off and you will sleep so well at night.Good luck.
Received Threatening voice mail this morning, calming to be IRS, identified themselves as agent Adams, Scott. Had Indian accent. This is a Scam, IRS would contact you via certified letter or have a summons issued, not call you and leave a voice-mail.
Called me threating legal action pending in court if I didn't pay them money. told them this sounds like a scam and took down their information and hung up.
Called himself Officer Jason Mike from IRS - fake or real
I received threatening call as well from same number and person Ryan Harris who claimed to be IRS agent. Do we need to call IRS
Got a call for a person whose name could not be understood, nor much of the entire beginning of the message. However, I could understand that the caller was Matt Lewis, and his 888-491-6167 . I could not understand the case . T L-or-M-or-N I and a number that I won't post.Seems to be designed as a psychological trap, to speak very fast, and mumble on the key identifying phrases like names, reasons for calling, and case numbers, but to speak clearly when saying court cases. Sounded at first like he said calling from Secret Service, but a look at caller ID and a search makes me think he meant Searay I know for a fact that I am debt free, and have been debt free for nearly 3 years now. And even when I was in debt, I was in regular communication with that debt collector. The people from that other debt collector were very nice and civilized in every communication, and always included letters as well as phone calls and printed bills and monthly invoices, which seems the proper, professional, LEGAL and ETHICAL way to handle the unpleasant business of debt management.
Also, as my nick name indicates, I am 100% positive that I am debt free, and have been for almost 3 years. I regularly review my credit history at the Annual Credit Report . com web site run by the FTC and credit scores from my bank for free and from the Credit Karma site, also free. Any number of family members may have had debt at some point in life, but it is neither me nor my father, so they have absolutely no business calling either of us. They are not acting ethically or legally in their operations. They are trying to lure people into calling back, then abuse them into paying for a debt, preying upon the old and feeble minded people. I have filed a complaint with the FTC's Do Not Call . Gov web site.
I could not understand the entire beginning of his message. He spoke very fast and the sound was a bit muffled, or he selectively mumbled. I could not understand who he was addressing, who he was representing, or what the specific debt was regarding. There have been no postal mailings, as is customary in a legal debt collection attempt. However, when it came to the threatening sounding phrases like court and legal action, his voice magically became clear and slowed down a bit. Then again, I could not understand the case either. I generally have excellent hearing. I can hear someone outside raking leaves about 100 feet away, over the sound of my noisy computer and the sound of the wind blowing on the trees and buildings. My father, whom I live with, would likely not have understood any of the message at all.
In the last two days, I received a phone message stating that I had two claims pending, similar to the responses given to others. This particular person said his name was Roy Gibson. It also sounded in the background as if it was a boiler room with others also making calls. I do not plan on responding to them, however it I answer and do get them, I'll tell them that my attorney will contact them. That usually gets them upset and/or they don't call again. I'll get these calls every 6 months or so and I noticed the responses below are somewhat current, so apparently we must the new group on the list they just purchased. Hang in there the best way you can.
Received a similar threatening call person did not indicate who he was calling for. Claimed to be IRS agent officer jason Miller.
CID just shows New York, caller never leaves a message
same here, fake IRS. For the record IRS NEVER CALLS IRS sends certified mail out ONLY.
called and left a message. Said he is IRS officer.
called and left a message. Said he is IRS officer. Spoke with a very heavy aaccet.
Got a call from this number and called himself as IRS officer and mentioned all sorts of things saying tax collection.This is a spam call and please dont attends such calls.
Continue to receive calls from this number daily. Whether I answer the phone or it goes to voicemail, it is a pre-recorded message. They always mention they are with the IRS and to call back during business hours. Contacted the IRS with the reference number they provide and IRS has no record of it.
text asked me yo and then asked if the road i lived on was the right one. asked who it was got nothing
you have to get an adress and then you send them a certified letter telling them to cease and desist. Once you have proof that this letter was mailed and recieved they have I believe up to 30 days to delete your number. If you recieve any calls after 30 days of them recieving the letter then you can take legal action.,
Called my phone whith recorded message say IRS and case and call back
