2402322197 Same thing here in Mississippi - Same "badge number" same phone number, same phoney line about being arrested - How can this keep happening? It's now mid-May and this has been going on since mid-March, according to above posts - Where is law enforcement?

240-232-2197 IRS fraud call

Post by Granny Sprite,

2402322197 The caller id for the call I received said "Michigan" and the number was -- (obviously a fake having the series in it) -Two things I don't understand are: - Why do phone utility companies allow fake numbers to be listed on a caller id in the first place? - The number they ask you to call is () - which (according to those in this blog who have called it) is a working number -  Additionally, many say they have reported this fraudulent scam to the IRS -  How difficult can it be for law enforcement (especially those in the IRS) to track down where this number is located, and if nothing else, have the phone company disable the number??

Post by Phil O.,

240-232-2197 Got a call from a female with a strong British accent detailing I am a target of tax fraud and to call their number to settle the account -  This person must be the dumbest scammer yet as to call someone from their landline and leave a voice message with a return phone number for me to call back -  Yeah, right -  I wasn't born yesterday and they must think I'd be scared to call them back -  This is a second attempt from a fake IRS agent in the last year -

2402322197 Well as long as we are not using fuzzy math, that set of hypothesis will be ok -  Now as to the tiger, if I meet one in the forest, I won't have time to admit anything but that I am about to be dinner -

240-232-2197 Heavily-accented British robot with bad grammar left a message - Couldn't trace b c home phone doesn't have caller ID, but was curious whether it went anywhere or not - Wouldn't surprise me if it was originated somewhere outsied the US but using internal area codes as relays to hide its origin -

Post by Alexis,

2402322197 I also just received a call demanding that I comply with their demands, I however have a DSL number which gives no caller ID information -  I guess they just have a random number generator calling device and let it roll -  I did think it was a collector for the people that used to have the number prior to ours being assigned as our super fast Century Link DSL line (my husband works @ Century Link) -
