called and said they are with the IRS and my 2008-2013 taxes were miscalculated on my part and I owe a substantial amount and if I don't pay, they will arrest me. When asked him for the last four of my SS, he couldn't give me that the idiot gave me the last four of my phone number. DUH! I think I will return the fake prank calls. I have nothing but time!!!!!! Thanks to the government for the "Do Not call" List!! It is much like obamacare, in that it DOESN'T WORK WORTH A c**p!

Phillip Johnson badge #634126 - just to make it "official". answered the number when I called back after receiving a message that the IRS was suing me. H claimed that I needed to listen without interrupting because this was an official call. He claimed my 2008-2013 tax returns had been reviewed and I owed $3423.00. I could take care of this immediately or they would take me to court and the sheriff would be sent to my home address to place me under arrest and take me to jail. I told him to send the sheriff and we can settle this in court. He hung up.

Same notice. IRS is going to sue me. A middle eastern sounding man answerd 'IRS' - I told him he wasn't the IRS and he asked how did I know? I said because I'm not stupid......He tried to continue and I asked for his credentials but he said we'll be in touch. Good Bye ! ! !

Claims to be with IRS and threatened me that they were suing me and sending the sheriff. These are scammers with one of those magic jacks of which u can obtain a number inside the United States which makes them seem more legimate. I have had endless calls from this same scam just different USA numbers.
Don't call them or give them a moment of your precious time. These people are scum.

Received message that this was a final notice from IRS. Called 917-725-2228 spoke to a rude foreign person and I asked if this was United states. He had my name and house address. I told him why nothing was ever received in mail which I know my accountant would of notify my. He told me not to interrupt him and if I don't pay $3760 an arrest warrant will be issued. I told him send me something now via email to prove his identity he would not. He hung up.

Same as everyone else - received a voicemail saying it was from the IRS and that a lawsuit was being filed against me. Called back several times, the line kept dropping, but the one time I got through, it was a guy with a foreign accent and I could barely hear what he was saying - he said was I aware of the lawsuit, and then that I had to listen without interruption, then the line went dead. I have never been so happy to hear the automated phone system as when I called the real IRS afterwards...!

Received a call from 917.725.2228 that I was being sued by the IRS. That seems completely illogical as there would have been written correspondence and indeed, an audit. Clearly this person doesn't understand that in nearly all situations, the United States tax code is not set up for lawsuits by phone.

A message was left on my answering machine at 7:51am by a robotic woman's voice who stated that this is the final notice that the IRS was filing a lawsuit against me. For one thing, the call was before 8am which in itself is illegal. The IRS has never sent me anything in the mail about any kind of lawsuit, which really alerts me this is a BS scam. They never identify themselves, but make it seem like they are from the IRS. Whoever is pulling this scam should go to prison for the severe emotional distress this call could cause many people.

I received a recorded message saying the IRS is suing me and to call 917-725-2228. When I called back the 'IRS Agent' said my tax returns from 2010-2013 were miscalculated and I owed the IRS $832. The IRS has sent me three letters and because I didn't respond they were putting out an arrest warrent and the police would be at my in 35 minutes to arrest me. I asked for his superviosr and he said he was the supervisor. The call dropped and I got a busy signal when I called back. I called my tax preparer, who said it was a scam. The IRS has a 1-800 #.

Thank goodness for everyone's posts! I listened to a message saying it was a final notice from the IRS. I started to panic, I hadn't received ANY sort of mail or phone messages. I tried calling back the 888 number it had called from, and said it was no longer in service. I then looked up the (917) 725-2228 and you guys saved me from the panic! I also called them back but all it did was ring multiple times before I just hung up. I was hoping to get some more information from them so I could report it somehow.

Anyway, thanks guys for everyone's posts/heads up!

I called this 917 725 7225 number back after receiving a message from it and 707 822 9870 that the IRS was suing me. They claimed that I needed to listen without interrupting because this was an official call. This guy claimed my 2006-2014 tax returns had been reviewed and I owed $3423.00. I would take care of this immediately or they would send the sheriff to my place of work in Dalton Georgia and place me under arrest and take me to jail. I tried to speak with the man but he was terribly rude and would not let me speak, when I told him this was being recorded and would be turned over to my U.S. Senator he hung up.

When I called the guy that answered repeatedly asked me for the phone number the message was left on but I wouldn't provide the number.

Was called by 917 725 2228, A pre recorded message said the IRS has been trying to call me. This is the last attempt. The IRS is going to sue me. Call 917 725 2228 immediately. Th4eir caller ID shows, 818-843-9427.

We did not receive any mail from the IRS. Our taxes are caught up.

I smelled scam up front. I thought it may be an offshore line that charges your phone number and did not call.

I did research the number online and found many who claim this is a scam. SO here is my input.

SCAM!

Do not call back. Contact your state attorney general and complain of interstate wire fraud.

Why have the Feds not shut this place down?

Mr. Obama, here is a crime, please put Mr. Holder on it. Thank you.

I had the same thing -- guy with a foreign accent, said that I couldn't interrupt because it was an official IRS call, claimed my returns had been reviewed from 2008-2014 and that I owed $2723, and if I didn't pay there would be an arrest warrant issued!

When I asked why I hadn't received any letters about it, he claimed that two were sent with no response...
