Do not fall for these scam phone calls!!! The IRS will never call you by phone! All communication from the IRS is by written correspondence, letters. I have received 3 of these calls and 1 email, just this year! I have reported them to the IRS. These crooks are working over time threatening the public and unfortunately many people are intimidated and give out their personal information and money. Do not fall for this scam. If you have any elderly friends or family watch out for them...they are the most preyed upon.

My daughter received the same kind of threatening call from Jennifer Lincoln at the Dept of Legal Affairs. I googled the Dept of Legal Affairs and one website which came up described a similar phone scam. http://fox59.com/2014/03/24/consumer-alert-irs-warns-hoosiers-of-phone-scam/ Haven't called them back.

I got the same call as those stated below. I'm glad I looked up the number to see that it was a scam! I was very nervous! When I called, it rang a few times then turned into a busy signal.

Sean Adams (with a thick Southeast Asian accent) calling from "the Department of Legal Affairs." No specifics for what. Calling about the "enforcement actions being taken against you." Yeah, right. FRAUD.

THIS IS A SCAM. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE THESE PEOPLE ANY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. I REPEAT THIS IS A SCAM. A MALE CALLED, HAD A DISTINCT FOREIGN ACCENT. SAID HE WAS WITH THE IRS, AND CLAIMED I OWED MONEY BECAUSE TAXES WERE NOT FILED PROPERLY. HE PROCEEDED TO TELL ME THAT SINCE I HAD NOT RESPONDED TO ANY OF THE NOTICES THEY HAD MAILED, THERE WAS A WARRANT OUT FOR MY ARREST. I ASKED HIM TO EMAIL ME COPIES OF THE NOTICES, BECAUSE I WAS TERRIFIED. HE SAID HE WOULD TRANSFER MY CALL TO SOMEONE WHO COULD HELP ME, AND THEN THE CALL WAS MYSTERIOUSLY DROPPED. I CALLED BACK, THE SAME THING HAPPENED. AND OF COURSE THE AMOUNT AND NUMBER OF TIMES THE NOTICE HAD BEEN SENT TO ME WERE DIFFERENT. I CALLED THE REAL IRS, THE ANSWERING AGENT GAVE HER NAME AND ID#. SHE THEN PROCEEDED TO PULL UP ALL OF MY INFORMATION, AND RELIEVED ALL MY FEARS BY LETTING ME KNOW THIS WAS INDEED A SCAM.
