Caller claimed there was a warrant for my arrest and that I owed about $4,900 to the IRS. He explained there was a discrepancy on my taxes from 2012 or something like that. He said his name was officer Mark Taylor badge number blah, blah (he gave some number). He asked if I did this intentially. I told him of course not. He said to listen to him all the way through. I stopped him and said I think he’s trying to scam me. He said "I do not have time for this [censored]!" Then he hung up.

Received a voicemail from this number warning me that my personal property was being monitored for possible legal action & told me I had to call that number. I did & it was a loud call center that sounded oversea by accents. While trying to get info I was hung up on numerous times. One person said they were with the IRS and I owed them money for a loan. I have never had a Federal loan so I know that was the first sign. Then they insisted on my name & said they could not bring me up by phone #.

This phone number called 15 times today and left a message each time on my voice mail stating that they will take action against me. I finally unblocked the number and called it back and the person who answered said that they were with IRS Investigations and that I owed money. I told him I did not and said to have me taken off list. But they are probably calling a lot of other people.

I have been contacted twice from the telephone number of 510 404-7381 stating they are contacting me concerning tax fraud connected to my name. Both times, I allowed them to leave a message and not answer it myself since I did not recognize the number and thought it to be some telemarketer. The first time I dismissed it. The second time I called the number back and it went to a voice mail w/no identification saying it was full and to call back. When I called back, I got a operator from some foreign country and I just hung up. I went online to reverse number identification that identified the number to belong to a J2 GLOBAL COMMUNICATION in Fremont-newark, CA. but it did not give the address as I only paid for basic ID. I googled the company names to find out it was some sort of marketing company and does not have an office listed in the caller’s area. The message left me said to call them b/f this matter goes into litigation before a federal judge. I called back and got a Christina Hernandez who said my voice was breaking up and to call back when I asked company she represented. A follow up call went straight to a full voicemail box twice. My taxes are up-to-date and I don’t owe anything in taxes. It would seems to be fraudulent so I am reporting this as such.

The first part of the voicemail was lost because it was an automated message. The remainder said "… under custody by the local police as there are four serious allegations pressedon your name at this moment. We would request you to get back to us so that we can discuss about this case before taking any legal action against you. The number to reach us is 716-804-7647. Thank you" When I called back, they claimed to be the "IRS" when they answered. I then hung up on them.
