I have received two voice mails (in a computer voice) stating that I am under investigation for fraud & ethics violations in my recent tax report. Some 'audi' report? And instructed to call Officer Ryan Smith at 664-558-6671 and that if I ignore this it's 'against my side'. I don't know how to share the voicemail or if it's even possible to do that

Foreign people here in US saying I will be sued by IRS

I'm certain you are aware of this, but I want to make sure you get the numbers so you can deal with these imposters claiming to represent you. I have repetitively received calls from these numbers and am given a message stating that I am being sued by the IRS, and will need to contact them to work out a payment plan to solve the problem. I used to live in Washington state, so recognize the area codes I have given you to be from Tacoma as well as Bellevue. This activity is increasing each day so hope you are able to locate these people and prosecute them. Good luck!

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.
