I just received this threatening call from 817-376-9769 Has me totally shaken up! (Called Legal Sheild about it..should have googled the number first.)This person tells you they are 'official" give you their name and badge number.Says you owe the IRS x$ ..they quote IRS violations you have committed and are now suing you..these awful people threaten to seize assets, and report you to the police and have the police lock you up for 72 hrs!! I kept asking why we did not receive official notification from IRS...was told I have the optiion of going to court to fight the IRS..or settling out of court.When I said I'd do that( I know I should have smelled a rat!) he transferred me to another foreign person who said I needed tto decide now..I asked about a scam..he said he was calling the police dept and they'd be here in 30 mi to lock me up! How awful is this!!! I will report them to the Police!!

Received another phone call from (646) 809-9682. The call is another scam in the making. Just ignore this message. The local authorities in NY should do something about this fraud scheme of things for many are affected by this attempt.
