I have received over 20 pieces of mail/mailers telling me in various ways that I owe over $16,000.00 to the IRS, complaint made by St. Louis City County and I need to pay soon or action will be taken. Liens have been filed, The Federal Taxing Authority will be taking hundreds or thousands of dollars from my paycheck if I don’t call soon and take care of this outstanding balance. They use all the right words, ‘Notice of Lien Citation’, ‘Federal Tax Lien’, ‘Date of Violation’, ‘Violation Summons’. All of this is not true and is a scam. They have different types of mailings, with different 800 numbers that lead to the same American man answering the phone. He has used foul language and harassment to scare me. Mailings come from ******* Co, CA and TX with P.O. boxes in order to fill out forms and return your information by mail as well. They answer the phone as Tax Co or Tax Group but their mailings may be posted by The Department of Taxation and Appeals. They are not affiliated with the IRS or federal government as printed in tiny print at bottom of mailers. Most people wouldn’t see this as most of the names and language used sounds legit. They are scammers and they are hostile.
