These callers are claiming that the IRS is pursuing a lawsuit against you, or have a warrant out for your arrest. If you do not answer, they will likely leave you a message warning you that this is your last notice from them.
Local consumers have reported the numbers that these scammers are asking you to call them back at are 202-864-1213 and 585-364-6540. Another person reported the number they left for her to call back was (716) 795-0238.
