Yeah. They've been telling me I'm going to jail for years now, off and on.


Just think. The world was built by the lowest bidder.

@k72347s  Good grief! Once a week you report them and nothing? Ugh. I think I'd do two things: report the calls to another fraud prevention agency and also take one of the bogus IRS calls so I could tell them that I have been reporting their scam. I like the direct approach on things like this, though.

 

4 months. Yikes.

I got the calls from the same IRS scam once a week. I don't remember the number anymore. I have reported it once a week as well. You it would stop by now. It has been going on for 4 months now.

Thanks for the responses. Believe it or not, got the same call again today from a Yonkers NY area code. Did not respond, of course. I must be on someone's "sucker" list.

LOL!  I guess another possibility is that you are just a bad seed, @philhorldt and it is finaly catching up with you. Hee hee. 

 

Hang in there.

Just did a quick search and seems you are not the only one.... Google "Area code 202 phone scam" and you will get a ton of results. All calls have the same narrative about being arrested for not showing up for court. 100% SCAM!  https://www.whocalledme.com/AreaCodes/202

Received the same voice mail today 9/28/17 10:29a.m. I didn't call them back either. The voice is a digital pre-recorded message. I suppose if the IRS wants someone they won't come calling?

Sure wish this type of scam could be stopped. It's horrible folks get taken like this!


Right. The IRS wants a paper trail, so they put it all in writing.
