Alex Watson, who says he is with the IRS legal dept called my son on his cell phone asking for me. He told my son I had to call him right back because I was going to be picked up from my job and taken to jail for 3 years. So I call this Alex Watson back and listen to his line of c**p and when I started to question him he told me I had no right to ask questions and he was calling my employer (who is my husband) right away to let them know I was going to be arrested at my job and that I would probably get fired right away. I told him if he was with the IRS then I wanted his Badge number........Well he did not like that at all so he told me he was going to come and beat the s**t out of me. I recoreded my entire conversation with this jerk and once I told him that he hung up on me. I would love to know how he got my childs cell phone number!!!!!

This clown left me a message and apparently lots of other people, as well. This is the message verbatim:
"This is officer Alex Watson calling from the Legal Department off Internal Revenue Service. This is in reference to a criminal lawsuit file again see you. Your case number is CH94436. The moment you receive this message I need you or your retained attorney off records to return the call. The issue at hand is extremely time sensitive. My phone number is 315-567-4410. Do not disregard this message and do return the call now. If you don't return the call and I don't deal from your attorney either then the only thing I can do is wish you a good luck as the situation unfolds on you."
I ignored it and received no further contact.

Caller name: ALEX WATSON Phone#: 202-803-4955

Caller type: Unknown

I received several phone calls from this number: 202- 803-4955. The guy left me a voicemail today (April 13, 2015). This creep identifies himself as Alex Watson, with the IRS Legal Department (Pin#: 3H94436). He informed me that the IRS had filed some kind of a law suit against me ( it is difficult to understand this moron due to his heavy accent ), and threatened me that if I or my attorney did not get back to him I would land up in jail right away. He left me a phone number to call: 619-378-0051. I called this number several times out of curiosity, but the line remained busy. I am surprised that this fraud has been doing this to many others, as well. Has anyone reported this guy to the right authorities, such as the IRS? He should be caught and deported back to wherever the h**l he came from.

The caller sounded like he was from India or that area. He said he was Alex Watson with the IRS legal department and that I needed to call him in regards to a criminal case (# CH94436) that was filed against me. At first I was alarmed considering the IRS has auditted me for 2 years and had just settled that last year. He was using (220) 795-1580 a DC number. When I dealt with the IRS it was in Philidelphia so I got suspicious and look online to see if there was a scam going around.

There was someone calling from what they claimed to be the "IRS." They wished me "luck" if I didn't call back to their message. I called back and pretended to be my own "attorney of record." These asshats are up to no good, and I hope no one falls for this c**p. I hope that whoever is running this scheme ends up in jail.

Posed as IRS agent with a thick middle-eastern accent demanding over $3000.00. After questioning him, he later admitted that he was a 20 year old scammer and that he and his associates were not interested in scamming "honest working people" but those who obviously could afford it. Kept him on the phone for 15 minutes. I asked him if he felt bad about it, he said he felt bad when people who couldn't afford it got upset, then he would find a way out of it and either hang up the phone or claim an error had been made. I asked him if he realized that he would be held accountable, he said he didn't thing the authorities would ever catch him. I told him that he was accountable to God, and asked if he believed in God. He said that he did and that he was a Christian. I said, if you were a real Christian you could never cheat anyone like you are doing. He asked me how old I was, I told him, "old enough to be your father, and if I were, I would encourage you to make amends and find honorable work." I told him that I would pray for him, he was silent and then said "thank you, I have enjoyed talking with you - you have been very nice to me."

The first voicemail was a woman claiming she's calling from the office of Alex Watson and said I needed to call back because there is a lawsuit against me and wished me luck in what will be imposed upon me if I didn't call.

When I listened to the voicemail a second time, it became a man's voice with the same message.

He wouldn't tell me how he got my number even though it was my mom's name "on the account". When I continued to ask he got frustrated.

Alex said he worked for internal revenue services. I said what? Then I laughed. He said, well when the police come and pick you up from your job laugh at that. Then he hung up.

No clue how they got my number or what they were talking about.

Justice claimed he was calling from the IRS Legal Department and I have legal charges pending against me, etc. Then proceeded to demand I call this number back (and yes, I asked why I must call it back, if I simply had to call the very number he is calling from) to speak to their "Legal Officer" about the pending charges. Case # CB1048. Another scammer tries this I need to pursue legal action against THEM.

10:54
Again with the same guy - different name demanding my attorney's name and that I call back. I told him I called and no one answered, also that I researched them and they are illegal and to stop calling me as I will legally pursue them. He called me a liar and began to raise his voice at me. I hung up and have blocked the number.

He then told me that I was going to be arrested at work tomorrow and put in jail for three years, but never told me why. He got angry when I laughed at him and hung up on me so I called him back. Told me once again that I'd "see what happens at work tomorrow" and hung up again. These people are getting brave.
