We just received a phone call from 202 506-9461.  I called the number back, which was answer by a woman named Ana with a strong Hindi accent.  She represented to me twice that she was from the Internal Revenue Service and that I had to provide her with my lawyers address so that they could send over all the necessary documentation regarding our case file against my wife.  I asked why she was calling and not providing writing notification since the Internal Revenue Service provides written notification.  She explained to me that certified letters where issued in March but no one was home to receive the letter, but I know that was not true since I work from home during March and no notice from the post office was left at the door.

I told her she was a scam and that I spoke with the IRS and FTC regarding fraudulent claims and she quickly hung up the phone.  I have written letters to the IRS and place a complaint on the FTC website.

Got a message from that number, women's voice, very heavy accent.  Said her name was John Smith, really?  Could tell she was reading the message, and could hear others in the back round doing the same.  Said it was over taxes and we better not ignore the message or there would be legal action taken against us.  Definitely a scam.

Sylvia, It appears that the filthy Jamaican rodents have adopted a new way to try and steal money from hard working Americans. Long the source of PCH/Mega-Millions lottery scam, these foul smelling roaches have begun using much more aggressive, threatening tactics.

This morning I was contacted by something calling itself "David Clark" from Washington (by the way, as mentioned by several earlier posters, these scum bags use Magic Jack to spoof the D.C. area code.)
Having received hundreds of lottery scam calls over the past year, I immediately recognized the tone and speech pattern of the caller. As I advise anyone who receives a similar call: try to extract as much information as possible from the creature calling you with out providing ANY personal information.

It repeatedly tried to confirm my identity but every time I moved the conversation to a different topic. Finally, the little animal "dun lost its call, mon" and began cursing and threatening me. Funny stuff.

There have been numerous reports (both here and on the local media,) that these Jamaican gangs are specifically targeting spouses of our deployed servicemen. How they are gaining access to the last 4 numbers of our SSN's is currently unknown but, I wholeheartedly agree with you: it is VERY scary.

Spread the word, these vile creatures need to be stopped. Permanently.

Dee, It appears that the filthy Jamaican rodents have adopted a new way to try and steal money from hard working Americans. Long the source of PCH/Mega-Millions lottery scam, these foul smelling roaches have begun using much more aggressive, threatening tactics.

This morning I was contacted by something calling itself "David Anderson" from Washington (by the way, they use Magic Jack to spoof the 202 area code.) Having received hundreds of lottery scam calls over the past year, I immediately recognized the tone and speech pattern of the caller. While I see several posters believe it is an Indian accent, they are simply incorrect.

OMG... received a voicemail at the home number for my husband.  Could BARELY understand the message because of the accent.  The only key items I was able to pick up (after listening to it 5 times) were:  TAX LITIGATION, ALEX CLARK, 202-506-9461 and the REF# they left.  This is indeed scary because of 1 of the posts above.  These people know our phone number, and the last 4 digits of the SS.  You wonder where they're getting this info from???

This is some coward hiding behind a magicJack device plugged in at some God-forsaken corner of the world where there is Internet service.  He's no better than a common criminal using a magicJack device and your fear the same way a common thief uses a toy pistol hidden in the pocket of his overcoat to make a bulge that looks like a real gun.

You can verify that this is a magicJack number by searching for it at http://www.phonevalidator.com .

This scam has been extensively researched at
http://www.pindropsecurity.com/consumer-fraud ... irs-phone-scam/ and it was found that magicJack numbers are frequently used, and many of the scammers are operating out of India.  There is even an audio recording of a call returned to one of these numbers and a written transcript of the recording contained in links from the Pindrop Security blog.

MagicJacks are readily obtainable outside of the United States for about $100 US and can come with up to a year of free calling to the U.S. and Canada.  In India, see, for example,
http://magicjack.in .

In addition to the regular reporting channels, e.g., the Department of the Treasury, the FTC, and/or your local state attorney general's office, you might also report the abuse to YMAX Corp.  I have seen reports that they are pretty good at responding to complaints and may be able to permanently shut off a magicJack device, if necessary, so that it can never be used again.

The YMAX Corp. main web page is at:
http://www.ymaxcorp.com
and their site giving information on how to lodge a complaint is at:
http://www.ymaxcorp.com/contact.html

Note that the "contact" website gives a clickable link to a "live chat" where you can make your complaint.

I had a call this afternoon from a person with a heavy Indian accent claiming that he was a person from the IRS,  Washington D.C.. He even gave a reference number, and his phone number which was (202)506-9461, his name was Robi Ray or something like that. He asked for my attorney to call him about a tax file against my husband, although it was unclear. I tried to ask more information, but he seemed to be in a hurry.

Got couple of calls from this number.   Called back and got the same story as the others here.  Was told I had an issue with my taxes going back 6 years.  I told this guy that my son-in-law work the County Fraud Department and I had turned their number over to them to investigate.   The guy immediately hang up .  Tried calling back and got voicemail with a full mail box.  Basically, blocked my number.   Called on another phone and got right to the guy again.   Told him we were getting close to shutting cooks like him down.   He hung up quickly again.    Maybe we all should keep calling this number and tie up their phones.....bombard them with phone calls......just a little revenge.....lol

This guy ,calling himself, Mike Carter, called and spoke to my husband telling him I need to call back the IRS . I was accused of fraud and that I was going to be arrested.  We are retired and are diligent with our expenses and know exactly what is due to who.  This was a very suspicious call and troubling.  He was hard to understand  Indian dialect. After I hung up I checked this number online and saw all the crank calls these fools make , I HAD to call him back and I called him every name in the book..he then called me an A----------.  That is for certain that is not a government employee. Don't fall for these clowns.

received a call on 31 May 2014 from 202-506-9461 from a guy named "Tray" with identification number 900128816? with a threat of criminal violation associated with unpaid taxes, and that, I will be taken into custody/put into jail if I don't pay a sum of $15G by "payment voucher" through remittance counter commonly found at Wal-Mart or Home Depot. Tray has a heavy accent too similar to the description of other people who received similar phone calls. I hope this guy along with his croonies gets caught as soon as possible.

WASHINGTON ? The Internal Revenue Service today warned consumers about a sophisticated phone scam targeting taxpayers, including recent immigrants, throughout the country.

Victims are told they owe money to the IRS and it must be paid promptly through a pre-loaded debit card or wire transfer. If the victim refuses to cooperate, they are then threatened with arrest, deportation or suspension of a business or driver?s license. In many cases, the caller becomes hostile and insulting.

?This scam has hit taxpayers in nearly every state in the country.  We want to educate taxpayers so they can help protect themselves.  Rest assured, we do not and will not ask for credit card numbers over the phone, nor request a pre-paid debit card or wire transfer,? says IRS Acting Commissioner Danny Werfel. ?If someone unexpectedly calls claiming to be from the IRS and threatens police arrest, deportation or license revocation if you don?t pay immediately, that is a sign that it really isn?t the IRS calling.? Werfel noted that the first IRS contact with taxpayers on a tax issue is likely to occur via mail
Other characteristics of this scam include:
Scammers use fake names and IRS badge numbers. They generally use common names and surnames to identify themselves.
Scammers may be able to recite the last four digits of a victim?s Social Security Number.
Scammers spoof the IRS toll-free number on caller ID to make it appear that it?s the IRS calling.
Scammers sometimes send bogus IRS emails to some victims to support their bogus calls.
Victims hear background noise of other calls being conducted to mimic a call site.
After threatening victims with jail time or driver?s license revocation, scammers hang up and others soon call back pretending to be from the local police or DMV, and the caller ID supports their claim.
If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS, here?s what you should do:
If you know you owe taxes or you think you might owe taxes, call the IRS at 1.800.829.1040. The IRS employees at that line can help you with a payment issue ? if there really is such an issue.
If you know you don?t owe taxes or have no reason to think that you owe any taxes (for example, you?ve never received a bill or the caller made some bogus threats as described above), then call and report the incident to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at 1.800.366.4484.
If you?ve been targeted by this scam, you should also contact the Federal Trade Commission and use their ?FTC Complaint Assistant? at FTC.gov.  Please add "IRS Telephone Scam" to the comments of your complaint.
Taxpayers should be aware that there are other unrelated scams (such as a lottery sweepstakes) and solicitations (such as debt relief) that fraudulently claim to be from the IRS.
The IRS encourages taxpayers to be vigilant against phone and email scams that use the IRS as a lure. The IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email to request personal or financial information.  This includes any type of electronic communication, such as text messages and social media channels. The IRS also does not ask for PINs, passwords or similar confidential access information for credit card, bank or other financial accounts. Recipients should not open any attachments or click on any links contained in the message. Instead, forward the e-mail to phishing@irs.gov.

More information on how to report phishing scams involving the IRS is available on the genuine IRS website, IRS.gov.

Prank Call
I just got a call from an indian woman (sounded like) from this number, and asked me to call a Michael Carter to talk about my tax issues. She started by asking me if i have a lawyer. Then she urged me to call the above number and this person will tell me all about the issue I have. She said they are the investigators or IRS. She even gave me a reference number.

IRS calling me on Saturday morning? Sounds like a total scam to me.
