The # 202-239-2240 is a land line not a cell, I received the same call and looked it up. And then called IRS it is from their call center oddly enough. Guess we need to check info before we post it!
Same call. Caller left a message. He had an Indian accent saying I was named as a prime suspect in a criminal investigation by the IRS. Left this number for me to call back. I reversed the number, it is a cell. Since the IRS doesn't use cell phones to make business calls I knew it was bogus!

?You can also file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission at FTC.gov. Add "IRS Telephone Scam" to the comments in your complaint.
I got the same call probably the same person. I told him that if it was the IRS, the second thing they say is their badge number. He hung up!!?
I got phone call from this number but its fake IRS call
I just got the same message only they called me back 3 times and said they would have a sheriff at my house in 45 minutes.
The caller ID showed this number as Unknown. The caller with heavy Indian accent left a voice message, claiming that he is from IRS and my name has been listed as primary suspect for fraud and if I don't call back ASAP, I will be liable for legal actions.
