Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you today.

This phone message is a SCAM. Do not call the number back. The IRS NEVER calls taxpayers threatening a lawsuit.

The following link contains excellent information you will find helpful:

You have nothing to worry about.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
