yes, but it is a scam... not the IRS.
please do not fall victim to these jerks!


since I got the call from this number I have been doing my studying so that I do not come close to falling victim to these scumbags again..

so that this case receives attention, you should report this number to the FTC:

https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/#crnt&panel1-1


here is info on other ways to deal with these calls as well, which is quite useful because since I answered that call I have also received numerous calls from other numbers and a quick search has confirmed that many  of the numbers are indeed numbers belonging to low life scammers.

they scared me too!
I was actually falling for it and walked out of a lecture because I was so worried...

I was falling for it until they told me I would have to pay them at CVS?!!!?!?!?
I then told them that I think this was a scam and the guy got angry and said

"okay. well, you're going to be the one behind bars. You are trying to make a joke out of the IRS" and I just said okay...and they hung up.

it made me so mad because I was so worried, I am a college student and almost called my parents to have them send me the $1,800 that these a holes were asking for

since I got the call from this number I have been doing my studying so that I do not come close to falling victim to these scumbags again..

did you inform the scammer about you working for the irs?

If you tell them that you work for the irs and know that you must provide an ID number and so on...that would most likely stop the calls..
they will see that you are not the best target since you aren't falling for it..
they are looking to make money and are looking for gullible people. they have thousands of numbers to call so if you make them believe that you are not going to fall for it, they will move on.

since I got the call from this number I have been doing my studying so that I do not come close to falling victim to these scumbags again..

you should also report this number to the FTC:

Oh my goodness! I received a call from this so called Mark Johnson. The number was 202-751-2536. he also told me that he was from the I.R.S Legal department and that I was going to be arrested for tax fraud. I asked him when and where this occurred. He told me that I needed to call the same number back and it would be explained to me.. When i continue to ask questions, He told me that the authorities would be at my house in 30 minutes to arrest me because I thought it was a joke. The sad reality is I WORK for the I.R.S. We don't make calls we send out certified  letters. A phone call is the last resort in contacting people. We also work 9 to 5 there are very few calls made after that time unless other arrangements were made by the party that we're attempting to contact. Also we have ID numbers that we have to give when we're handling tax issues. This way if you ever had to call back, they can identify who you were speaking to. See we have three Jeffery Walkers in our department but our ID numbers are different.

Received a call from "Ron Davis", who said he was with the IRS, and that I had a legal application filed against me for tax fraud.  I asked him for his phone number (202) 751-2536 ... He started to talk further, but I interrupted him, and asked that he again tell me why he was calling, which he, again, said " ... a legal application filed against me for tax fraud."  I asked him if the IRS has sent me a letter regarding this, and he said "yes, but it came back  ... addressee unknown."  I asked what SS number they showed and he advised " ... I can't give you that information.  You ARE _______ (name), right?"  I said "thank you for the information, who should I speak with when we call back?"  He said, YOU are going to call us back to take care of this, right?  I informed him that he had reached a law firm, and that one of my attorneys would call them back and get the information, etc., they needed to take care of me and this potential problem.  He said "okay" and hung up.

I have received phone calls for weeks from this number and haven't been able to answer and assumed that they were fraud since it said Washington, DC, so I blocked them, they've found other ways to call since and today I was actually able to answer. They scared the ever living be-jesus outta me claiming that I have tax fraud or have filled improperly (can't remember) and will be contacted by my local police to be arrested if I didn't cooperate and call a number provided...which was the same number they called from and I would speak with either John WIlson or Brian Taylor who were either from the IRS or a Deputy. Thanks for having this forum on it bc I was scared to death. When I started asking how they knew my information, they asked if I was in my right mind. Pretty sure that's not how I would be talked to even if it were the IRS. They kept breaking up, so I told them and the guy got mad and said "fine, you'll be contacted by your local police" and hung up on me.

Call came in from 202-751-2536 and a message was left that his name was Mark Johnson from the Legal Dept of IRS and that they had received a letter  with my name (stated my name) and social (did not give a social security number) letting them know that I was involved in tax fraud and that I needed to call that same number back and work with them before I got into any more trouble..  Man used very broken english and had a foreign tone to it.  Kinda scared me till I started reading the blogs....didn't know of any tax fraud that I could be charged with but you never know in todays world either.  Will block the number and try to get the word out locally about this so nobody gets drawn into their scam.  Thanks for the blogs and post 800notes!!

Yes, i read that in the information that slim sent me above... its the irs link.

It makes me so angry to think that people are getting away with this!!!

...i was on the phone for 20 min. With this scumbag...when i told him i think this is a scam, he got mad, i told him i would contact the irs directly and give them his information and he just angrily said okay and hung up...i was already about to send the money too...when he said to pay it at cvs, i knew it was a scam. I was so worried because he was saying i had warrants out and i would be arrested if i didnt pay.

I received a call from them this morning and a friend put me at rest she said it was probably a scam because if the irs needs to contact you they do it through the mail they would never call you.

I have been doing research and im amazed at how many people pay money to these scammers....its so sad!
Thank you for the resources, i will definitely be looking in to it....i was on the phone with him, convinced it was true, but when he mentioned for me to pay at cvs and keep him on the line
It sounded way too strange....then when i accused him of being a scammer...he got very defensive so, i told him i would take it up with the irs directly....and he got angry and said ok and hung up.

There is a fairly common IRS or "tax scam" being practiced by scammers in both Canada and the USA.
USA tax payers should read this:
http://www.irs.gov/uac/Tax-Scams-Consumer-Alerts
Note particularly the links at that site, warning of the scam!

A shorter explanation is Scam  #11, as shown at
http://phonehelp.2truth.com/facts.html

That site also shows how other 800notes visitors have reduced the number of telephone scams and telemarketing calls they receive.  (And, a link to Amazon's phone blocker devices and apps is there).
