The man on the phone (Indian accent) said I had been randomly selected for a government grant that I was eligible for because I had no criminal record or bankruptcy. I was told I could get $9000 through a wire transfer or bank deposit and all that was needed was my SSN or bank account number.

I received a call and when I said "Hello" I heard a man say "Hi, this is so-and-so and I’m calling about your healthcare, can you hear me". Instinctively I said "Yeah, I can…" and the other line hung up. I’m afraid it could have been recorded and used as authorization for something.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

347-518-1432 (New York, NY number) called a left a voice message stating, "About a lawsuit which has been filed on your name so before we go with legal matters and send this to the local county court kindle call us back on our number which is 347-518-1432. I repeat 347-518-1432 thank you and goodbye."

They called back right after the message was left- it is a group of middle eastern foreigners who claim they are the IRS. I knew right away that they weren’t because 1.) I am not in any sort of legal/financial trouble and 2.) They started to cuss at me when I wouldn’t give them any information they were asking for. I know the real IRS would not do that.

Do not answer any of these calls, let them go straight to voice mail. And if the message states you are in legal trouble. Check to see if the number is valid or you can always call the real IRS just to make sure.

They knew my name, called me by my last name. They said that we certainly had damages from the current storms and asked if we’d like a quote & I said thank you but no.

I tried to call the phone number back and it said it was not in service – that’s what got me suspicious.

I received a missed call and voicemail from the number indicated. The voicemail stated "This is the Internal Revenue Service. We are calling to inform you that the IRS has filed a lawsuit against you. There is also an active warrant for your arrest. Please call 844 819 8492 to stop your active arrest warrant and get more details about the lawsuit filed against you." I called the number back. A man with a middle eastern accent answered "how can I help you". I told him "I’m calling about the voice mail you just left". About 10 seconds of dead air followed so I asked "hello?" Then was hung up on. I called back, it rang twice, then was sent to voicemail that said "nobody is available to take your call, please leave a message". 2 hours later I called again and it went straight to voicemail. I left a message stating that I was reporting his number.

Sounds like an Indian accent trying to find me. They have my name and I don’t know how. They state they are calling from the "US Government Department" trying to give out grants or something. I have reported them before on several different numbers. They hang up on you if you ask for a manager or to take you off their list. They called me 4 times yesterday on this number and once this morning and I have now blocked them.

PLEASE PUT A STOP TO THIS! WEEKS OF HARASSMENT!

I received over 9 calls from this number between 8am and noon before I blocked it. They sounded like they were from India and all they said was: "I am calling from the US Government Department looking for *they new my full name*" when I told them to stop calling, or asked for a manager, or asked them to take me off the list they would simply hang up and another person would all back not too long after. After blocking one number, the next day after receiving two calls I blocked that number too.

The scammer identified himself as John Adams, and said he was a Supervisor of the DNC department of the phone company. He said he was calling because we’d complained about telemarketers calling our business and he needed to place us on the do not call list. (DNC= do not call)

He got my name, my job title, tried to get my birthdate, and got me saying "yes," "correct," and "sure" a few times.

This particular scam was a robo call asking if I could hear the caller. This was followed up with a request for information related to a "Free" night at a Marriot Hotel. The last question was related to signing up to be placed on the ‘Do not Call’ list by pressing number 3 on my phone. It wasn’t until I read an article related to the "Can you hear me?’ scam that I realized I had been duped.

I received 4 to 6 calls within 8 minutes because i was picking up the phone and would mute it. The person would hang up and would call again within 30 seconds and when i got annoyed i decided to call back and ask them to take my number of their list. I was recording everything on my phone. The guy had and accent and kept asking me if i was this other person he was trying to contact and i told him i dont have to tell him anything and what he is doing is illegal and he laughed then proceeded to hang up. He didnt seem very professional. I kept calling to make sure my phone was not contacted anymore and i could only hear background noise.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

I was contacted by ‘Agent XXXX’ from the US Department of Treasury (with an Indian accent….) It was to inform me I had a federal lawsuit against me in regards to my 2013 & 2014 tax filings as they were filed improperly and I had an outstanding readjusted tax liability of $5,236.

After I asked too many questions with ZERO satisfactory answers I demanded a manager/supervisor. I was hung up on several times. I called back to let them know I’d be reporting them to BBB/FTC/Police anyone who could come after them and they replied ‘go-ahead’.

They have no fear of being caught or punished operating this highly aggressive and scary outbound tele-scam.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

Caller left a voicemail stating they were with the IRS and I needed to call them immediately. The first person referred to himself as Rick Peterson (a male with a heavy East Indian accent), gave an ID number, and stated that b/c I wasn’t home when a warrant for my arrest was being delivered, they were going to call the Sheriff to have me arrested immediately as soon as the call was over. He repeated this many times. They claimed I owed $5,260 to the IRS for tax years 2013 and 2014. I told them that couldn’t be as I had regular mail communication with the IRS for the 2014 tax year and hence was certain no residual balance was possible. I asked to speak to a supervisor and was transferred to a Mark Black,, also a male with a heavy East Indian accent, who provided his ID number. He gave the same story and claimed they had been in contact with Turbo Tax, who refused to comply and hence the need for my arrest. I told him they must be a scam b/c the IRS would never go through Turbo Tax to settle a tax matter. He then stated a sherrif wouldn’t be sent and hung up.

A man called saying that I had been accused of a federal offense against the Dept. of the Treasury. He gave me a number to call so that they could help me.

Claims a CP503 notice was sent informing you of an unpaid balance.

These people try to use scare tactics to get money from you.

Total money lost $500

Type of a scam Identity Theft

I was called by Bellco Fraud unit on 1/20/16 stating that a young man in Tacoma WA had created a remote access to my Bellco account. This was done through a ‘Gen 2 Teller Machine’. All the thief needed was my name, address, Bellco Account number, and the last 4 digits of my Social Security number. Since Bellco doesn’t require an ‘opt-in’ approval for this type of access, my account was open for this type of fraud. I’d never even heard of this type of arrangement or obviously would have blocked it. The thief did need some type of ID to ‘prove’ they were who they said and then it was ‘assumed’ that I’d given them the account info allowing him to immediately withdraw $500. My guess is that the ID used was either stolen or counterfeit.
