this number has called me 5 times now and left messages on my voicemail stating that if i don't take care of this "urgent matter" that the us marshalls will be coming to arrest me. they demanded the money owed to the irs within an hour in cash. this is clearly a scam. i am in washington state.

I got the same call, computer generated voice, IRS Agent Julie Smith. Saying it was urgent I return the call. It's obviously a scam. The IRS so u mcmahon send a letter first.

I received a message from officer Julie smith, stating I needed to call immediately to avoid further action- computerized voice. I called back and spoke with "officer Gary Foster". He proceeded to tell me that I was under criminal investigation for tax fraud and that federal marshals would arrive within the hour to arrest me. He was clearly from India and not the irs as he claimed. He told me that I was going to be an example for all the cheaters and liars and wanted to know if I would like to resolve the matter. It really upsets me that there are probably vulnerable people that will fall for this scam.

The caller did not identify herself. It did sound like a possibly computer generated voice. In a very threatening and sarcastic tone she said: "Action against you. Goodbye and take care."

Exactly what they said. Robo-call I didn't pick up. Not a live person. Really? The IRS wouldn't call you live?

This caller is calling elderly tax payers that have a tax bill and stating that they are from IRS. That the IRS has initiated a lawsuit against them and ask them to call a specific phone number. I do not have the phone number available because the elderly lady that they called was so upset she hung up the phone. So in case these scammers also review this website, My message to you is that your tactics work in reverse, instead of frenghting elderly tax payers into providing you bank info or whatever else you are after, you only upset them and as a result, they hang up and contact local authorities. I recommend this to all that receive a call from this number or see it on the caller ID. Do one of 2 things, 1. Don't answer or 2. If you do make a mistake and answer don't hang up and contact local authorities. Do not do anymore, do not even confirm your name, phone etc. HANG UP AND CONTACT LOCAL AUTHURITIES TO REPORT TO AVOID OTHERS FROM GETTING SCAMMED

Message left on device, from this "Officer" from IRS, saying were going to take action against me if I don't respond. Very threatening. Voice sounded computer produced. Left that number as IRS Hotline. When I called, nobody answered.

Called our house and threatened my college age son with arrest if he didn't immediately go to the bank and get a cashiers check for 2,500.00 to send in. I tried talking to him to have him mail us documentation, but he just kept yelling and wouldn't let me talk. Obvious scam. The IRS doesn't do anything without sending mail correspondence first.
