Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

It is most likely a scam. The IRS never initiate a contact with a phone call, always contact you first by mail, never e-mail or fax. IRS and the state department issued several warnings about phone and e-mail scams. You can call the IRS directly, but if the person demanded immediate payment, asked you to mail a prepaid card for instance, told you that a warrant was issued against you or the sheriff is on the way to arrest you unless you pay right know, those are all warnings signs that you are not dealing with the IRS.
