I just received the second of two calls from 202-506=9860. The first call said to call them back and do not ignore the call... When I called back, the phone rang repeatedly; after calling again in 15 min, it said the voicemail was filled up. That was two weeks ago... I just got the second call about 30 min ago saying the same thing. I called the number back and it took a couple of attempts to get someone over the phone... The first message left the name "HEATHER GRAY", so that's who I asked for. When the operator picked up the phone, she had a heavy foreign accent, stating that the IRS has been trying to serve me with a warrant for tax evasion and that I owe them $3999.86 for tax years 2011 and 2012. She said that there was no room for negotiation at this point and that I need to pay the tax deficiency or they would seize all my assets, bank accounts, passport, driver's license, etc. She said if I wanted to settle out of court I only had 30 minutes to comply. I told her I didn't understand what she was saying to me and she got nasty and said she was only an operator and she was doing her job. When I asked to speak to someone that I could actually understand she got nasty again and threatened me with sending an agent out to arrest me. She finally said what do you want to do and I said I don't have $4000 so she said how much do you have and I said $700. She said she could settle out of court for that amount and make arrangements for collecting the rest. I knew it was a scam but this is crazy! She actually thought she was going to get some money from me. When I asked for the IRS case number, she hung up on me... This is a mess! I hope nobody falls for this foolishness!!!
