Customer Question

I just got a messaged that said they were the IRS and had 4 serious allegations against me and that they would send the cops if I didn't respond. I can't imagine what that would be and didn't know if the call was legit.
JA: The Expert will know how to help. Is there anything else the Expert should be aware of?

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be able to assist you today.

I highly doubt that the call you received was the IRS.

When you receive a call that you suspect is not legitimate the IRS suggest you do the following

https://www.irs.gov/privacy-disclosure/report-phishing

IF you:

You receive a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS but you suspect they are not an IRS employee ...

Then

  1. Record the employee's name, badge number, call back number and caller ID if available.
  2. Call 1-***-***-**** to determine if the caller is an IRS employee with a legitimate need to contact you.
    • If the person calling you is an IRS employee, call them back.
    • If not, report the incident to TIGTAand to us at *****@******.***(Subject: 'IRS Phone Scam')
