Fraud alert: 8417 Mockingbird Lane Cincinnati Ohio USA 45231
8417 Mockingbird Lane Cincinnati Ohio USA 45231 June 26, 2017 Department of the Treasury Internal Revenue Service Kansas City MO###-##-####IRS –REGARDING: SCAM ALERT Form 1040, Tax year 2016, tax account number###-##-#### The IRS has consistently remained as a stalwart professional guardian of citizen protection in my experience, and I wish to inform your office of an impostor who should be apprehended and possibly punished for infractions in your name. Today at 2:35 PM, I received a verbal assault from an organization which uses your high regard amongst compliant citizens of this great country to frighten and plunder myself and quite possibly others who are fully compliant with IRS regulations. I wish to know what advice your office might give to me on this matter. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- On June 6, 2017, I was granted the standard additional time to complete review and payment of taxes due for 2016. My quick review of official IRS transcripts and their inherent liability for taxes due showed me that I had significantly underestimated them in my previous request for more time. While my calculations were incomplete at that time, they were sufficiently advanced for me to pay potential taxes. I therefore included an additional tax contribution for 2016 in the amount of $10,625.26 enclosed in two separate checks. This amount, plus that paid with request for extension of 3-27-2017 should be part of your excellent records.I regard myself as a compliant citizen and will always pay all taxes due to the US Government. This is due to my highest regards ***** ***** Government efforts. These high regards ***** ***** in part to my lifelong reverence for our country's basic goals, but have been underscored by my treatment by the Government itself. Voluntary service in the Republic of Vietnam as a Combat Engineer company commander was followed by further voluntary service as the Senior Protocol Officer for the Third Army HQ as CENTCOM Central HQ during Desert Storm. During my final term of service to the US Army, I held a “Top Secret, Segmented” clearance. My last active duty service was interspersed with service to the US Department of Energy where I was granted a “Q” clearance – Access to Nuclear Secrets, and retired after 23 years of successful work with that agency.The fraudulent use of IRS reputation is certainly a gravely serious infraction of applicable laws, and should be looked into with all due haste to determine suitable action by your agency. Though the miscreants who would cause havoc amongst those citizens you represent have not properly identified themselves, they did instruct me to call 740/(###) ###-####to arrange payment of taxes due or face: 1) garnishment of my Military pension, social security, and DOE retirement; 2) Lien on my home and automobile, 3) Confiscation of any and all personal possessions which could be held to have value. The woman's voice in this recorded message was threatening to the extreme, and though it was not mentioned explicitly, the mention of “all legal actions necessary to resolve this case” brought to mind an unannounced visit by uniformed armed personnel with the authority to breach my front door and demand restitution at gunpoint.I would appreciate knowing your advice on this matter as well as an indication of actions your office has taken.Regards, Philip E Neuscheler , LTC ABN RET … read more
