Called me today stating the same, the big problem with this guy was he had an Indian decent (as mentioned foreign decent by others)
I recognized it since he was dealing with someone who is also from India. He was not a happy camper when I was done dealing with him.
This is the second time someone has tried this to us. Lot of Indian folks specially elderly have been taken advantage of in the Indian Community in the State of Michigan and Metro Detroit Area. Pretty sad and shameful.

Caller ID displays "MEMBER ALERT". They call my home land line EVERY day, and I'm sick of it! I never answer, and they hang up as soon as my message kicks in. If they're calling for donations, I do not make donations over the phone. EVER!

Female caller offered a $100 gift card , a $50 dining card and a package of free samples. She then asked for my name, address and date of birth to send them. Then she said it would cost $1.95 for shipping, and she needed my credit card number, at which point I terminated the call. This call originated in Washington, D.C., at a number which appears to be a switchboard or proxy of some sort. Dialing the number gets something which sounds like a multi-client customer service call center switchboard, but when you request to speak to a representative, it tells you they are all busy and asks you to leave a message. A tone, sounding like a household answering machine, follows.

I received the same call.. however he asked me for the last 4 of my social & then my drivers license.. When I told him I am disabled & haven't worked in years so how can it be that 'I've paid my taxes on time", he said from years past, then proceeded to ask me for my credit card info & or banking info.

The caller is using a SPOOFED NUMBER, according to
the caller complaints website.    If you use a spoofed
number, you are a scammer.

Received this call regarding my husband. I do the taxes and know the rules. This is NOT from the IRS. I went ahead and reported the call to the IRS at 1.800.366.4484. However, even contacting the IRS about the phishing scam is frustrating in itself. Do NOT give any information to the 202-470-0343. IRS will send a letter to you if you owe. Again, do not give any information out.

Man with foreign accent stating he is from IRS, wanting someone named Roy Edwin or his lawyer to call him back. If Mr Edwin doesn't return the call all Officer Anderson can do id wish him good luck and whatever happens will be on Mr Edwin. I have had this phone number for over 4 years. I call back and told him I did not know Mr Edwin and I thought he was running a scam. He hung up on me. Then he started calling my phone from 202-470-0343. I told him that IRS would be mailing people info. I do taxes every spring and I don't think the IRS would be doing what he is doing!!!

These annoying people from Citizen Untied. I have a name Avery Raulston and a phone number to call to get removed. 330-668-1400.
Avery uses a speed dialer and will just continue to call you multiple times a day, day after day. Let's start calling them and annoy the hell out of them. Ask to be transfered to citizen United and get placed on their Company 'do not call' list. ask for the persons name and state that Avery Raulston told you to call.

Didn't recognize the number so I let my VM answer the call. The first half of the message was cut off, so I don't know the name of the company, but a guy basically starts quoting home related crime statistics, then says that you need to protects yourself......blah blah......then he says that the security system "can be yours with no cost to you", then call some number to to find out how.

This guy almost got my son and his fiancé, but we are smarter than him- I looked up the property (his name is nowhere on any documents associated with the house) and then searched the phone number. This guy is a POS, I wish they could catch him and put him away, a day for each dollar he has taken from innocent, hard-working people!

Appeared to be a spam call.

2025068939 called just after midday claiming to be the IRS.    He male caller asked for me by name and said they were initiating a case for tax evasion and tax deficiency.    They wanted the name of my "criminal" lawyer.    I asked his name and he said it was Aron Thompson. He also confirmed his phone number.    I said how could I be taken to court without a prior tax audit.    He said the IRS had sent me two notices last December and I had not responded.    When I questioned the address he had my actual address. He then told me that within 45 minutes federal officers would be at my home to cease all personal property.    When I asked him which tax account it was in relation to at which point the line was cut. I phoned back and he (or someone) answered IRS.    I phoned back 30 minutes later and again he answered IRS.    I said that was not correct and that I was IRS and that in 30 minutes the federal agents would be at his location to arrest him for impersonating a federal officer and attempted fraud.    He just started repeating all this back to me as if he was completely out of his mind. Then he started with /p0rn/ographic comments.    I told him he sounded insane and then I thanked him for staying on the line long enough for the police to trace the call. I then suggested he pack all his belonging and leave as fast as possible.

I received a call, first from a "private caller". When I answered, a female advised me that I was eligible for a "Sederao" grant in the amount of $7,000 for being a good citizen, not getting in trouble with the law and not filing bankruptcy. She stated there were two ways to receive payment 1) by direct deposit or 2) by Western Union money transfer. She then wanted to verify my mailing address and wanted to know my DOB. I would not give this information to her and she gave me the number 202-436-9770 to speak to the "finance manager". I hung up and called the Florida State Attorney General (866-966-7226) who took the information and had me call the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) (877-382-4357) to also report the scam. Both offices confirmed the scam. I urge anyone that has received a call from these scam artists to take the time, do the right thing, and report all incidences so these people can be caught
