User Complaints for 530-208-9859
Caller name: ID# 11109106
A guy with a thick Indian accent told me that there were issues with my tax return filed to the IRS last year and that I needed to contact the investigation department. The number he gave me to call is the number on the caller ID -530-208-9859. Obviously bogus. The IRS would not call, would not have someone on the phone that I couldn't understand, would not have to be asked for their ID # (I've called the IRS in the past and they always give their name and number upfront), it's unlikely it would be a South Lake Tahoe, CA location, etc.
I filed a complaint at the IRS Inspector General web site. Looks like email fraud is the more common thing.
Caller name: Robert Giltch
I got a voice mail from this number. He said his name is Robert Giltch but he had an Indian accent. On his message his mentioned about an income check and legal action.I have return back the call and no answer, only a beep to take your voice message. It is suspicious
Caller name: Internal Revenue
How refreshing, a SCAMMER that actually leaves a message! Same heavy Middle Eastern accent as the others have reported. If there were any real issues that needed to be addressed by the Internal Revenue Service (not the Internal Revenue Department), it would've been handled via USPS or contact made at the very least through my local field office and not by an office in South Lake Tahoe, California... that the actual IRS says does NOT exist. I refused to call back regardless if someone answers or not since they may have caller ID and if I call back, they can easily "verify" that my number is good and sell it on some list to other scammers.
Caller name: David Johnson
I got a message from this number from someone supposedly named "David Johnson" and whose message I could hardly understand a word of. Since I was barely able to make our Revenue Service, and the callback number, I called. Then some guy told me I had issues with my returns and that they were going to send me a subpoena to appear in court. At first I freaked out and now I realize it was totally bogus. A) The IRS wouldnt call; only use US Postal Mail...and B) They wouldnt have someone who cant speak english make their calls for them. Total BS; pisses me off. Im simply leaving this complaint so I have at least some complaint on record should this BS escalate.
Caller name: Dont know
Just as mentioned above, received a call from phone number 530-208-0695 at 8:12AM today. The lady caller left a message which I could not understand. So I called back to see what it was and the guy said that we have deficiency in our tax returns and spoke very rudely. I asked him why the IRS had not sent any letter and why he was calling from CA.When I was asking questions, he said " I am trying to tell you about it and you are acting smart. You will know if you see the Sheriff at your front door in 45 minutes to arrest you."
Thankfully I found this blog and have some relief that this is just a scam. I am regular on my taxes and this just scares me a lot!
I just got call from this number. The caller claim that he is calling from IRS. I am an Indian and I started talking to guy in Hindi. I can hear him talking in Hindi in background.
These guys are scamster. Do not talk or engage in any discussion. They just spoil your day.
Person claiming to be IRS. Fake. Don't trust, not actually IRS. Person speaking has heavy indian accent and at times takes really long pauses to finish his "english sentences" I hung up and the idiot called me again threatening me "why did you hang up we are the IRS, we will take all your possessions, ect." If you do get a call, hang up.
I got this call on Saturday morning and he said that he was from IRS and it was about tax issue and that I should call someone named Daniel Peters from IRS at 530-208-9859 about the details before legal allegations begin. I did not call because IRS would send a letter not call threatening litigation etc
Caller name: Alex water
This idiot called me on sat morning 7:30 AM staterted to threaten me if I dont call the 5302089859 then police will arrest me.
