I received the same message from a Mr. Michael Clark with the heavy Indian Accent for a Mark...No last name given. When I called back they asked for my last name and attached it to Mark .... Which is the same last name as my brother-in-law and said he had an hour to call back. It sounded fishy so I looked it up and found your comments. Thank you for showing me that this is a total scam

"Jeff Thomas" from "Department of Legal Affairs".Scam,saying it was regarding taxes from 2011 and I would soon be behind bars. After reading the many websites regarding the scam and this phone number, I called back and He said that all the people who have called and said this is a scam are now "Behind bars". As I was questioning this, asking why (if this was true) I hadn't received something in the mail...then something happened and then I was talking to a woman, who said a scammer was calling them and that I must be a scammer. I gave her the names of the websites citing this scam and she was (supposedly) going to give me a number to make a complaint as she was having the same issue...but then she mysteriously cut off.

This jerk called and left a message that almost put me into a panic at first. I have listened to this message at least five times and still cannot understand the reason for this so called crime of a raring pardon??? Whatever that is and to call my retained attorney to call him back as this is an issue of enforcement? This is illegal and they need to be stopped first its so called windows from Pakistan calling ten times a day now its this guy from Pakistan.

Male claiming to be Keith Martin from the Department of Legal Affairs- I have an enforcement that has been started against me and I need to call him and if I dont have time , I need to hire an attorney to do so. The guy has a cross between a Middle Eastern/Boston type accent. Very hard to understand and mispronounced common words. At the end he says to have a Very Blessed day and he looks forward to hearing from me soon. I could hear the chatter of other callers in the background

Unrelenting calls from "Mike Watson" - over 20 calls in one hour today - threatening residents at this number and attempting to extort money. Used profane language, hung up several times and continued to call back repeatedly. Filed police report and called phone company. Verbally abusive, taunting every single time he called. Would not allow us to speak to his supervisor. He had a Pakistani accent and could not even spell "Mike Watson" his supposed name. We warned him not to call again and advised him the police would be arriving to file a report to which he laughed and taunted, asking "Oh big deal. What are you going to do." Hung up on me and called back several more times telling us to respect him. His claim is to be from the "Department of Legal Affairs" and refused to indicate a location, branch or other identifiable information. He was told not to call back every single time he called and refused to comply. Police report filed, FTC notified. Officer attempted to contact the individual at the number and received a fast busy signal.

I can hardly understand the guy. He claims his name is Eric Foster form the Department of Legal Affairs and that I have a judgement against me and I need to call him at 562-735-2655. Even says that if I don't want to call him, that I should hire an attorney to call him, because of how serious of a legal matter this is and it requires immediate attention. The FTC fraud page is full of people that received the same call.

I got the same call just now, he said I own 2000 from 2012 taxes,he sounds like Indian or Pakistan person, the number that I called back is 202-795-1580.
I was tying to get information from them, but even he got upset that I was asking him questions, he said that the sheriff will come and arrest me, I asked him to send me this information by mail, and he said they already send the info some many times and I never responded , so I ask where did u send it, he did not give an answer! He ended saying that the sheriff will give me that information when he arrest me, but where is he coming to arrest me if you don't have an address to send me the information?, he said god luck and hang out!

Sounds a lot like my experience:
I got a call from "John Dorsey", number 213-437-6096, of the Dept of Legal Affairs, US Treasury Dept. He had a slight Hispanic accent, otherwise good English, asking to speak with my grown son.
He Wouldn't say why except it was in relation to a case being filed on Monday, and for my son to call right away to speak with "Chris Walker" at the same number. I gave no information but he knew our address, he claimed they sent a Certified letter and the failure to respond was the reason for the call. I reported this scam to the US Treasury TIGTA.

This robot has called me 27 times since 3:04 this morning. I just called Las Vegas Metro Pollice and filed a complaint. METRO says this is a scam call do not pick up the pbone when they call. METRO says they use multiple numbers these scammers. They said if you do not know the number on caller id do not pick up the phone. If number is legitimate they will leave a message.

Slipped up when he said it was Pacific time. I told him he should be on EST. He weakly responded that he was not at the headquarters of the Treasury, but one of their branch offices.

Andrew Hall a heavily accented man called and left a message with the statement above. I called the number back and spoke with a heavy accented Jason Dean, who asked if I had my lawyer present, and that I was being recorded and that I needed to be very specific in my answers. He never asked for any personal information but claimed I should have received a CP503-Notice in the mail that showed I owed outstanding money from a tax infringement back in 2009. I said I had not received a notice and asked that it be sent again, to which he told me that the local authorities had been notified and would be at my house within the next two hours with the information and would then arrest me at that point. I'm a mother of 2, one who happens to be an infant and I freaked out!!! I simply said thank you for the information and hung up the phone. Called a friend who looked up this info here and directed me here. What the F$$K?!?!? These people need to be stopped!!!

Very hard to understand due to the caller's heavy accent and background noise. He's called twice and left the same message both times. Some vague reference to legal action being taken against me and warning that I should call back to avoid a "legal mess." After researching this online, I'm convinced it's a scam.

I hope you will take this right and call me right back. This is Jeff something or another with Department of Legal Affairs. Looking forward to speak with you. Until then, have a blessed day. Good bye."

Now this guy had an Indian accent and there was a decent amount of background noise as well. He also called the house phone rather than my cell phone which is odd because I rarely even use the house phone anymore which leads me to believe that it's a scam even further. Why not just contact me directly? Anyways, I tried my best to type exactly what he said in the message giving his accent.

Very hard to understand message - heard the word "Attorney" in there and also he said "Bless you" at the end of the call. Left this number to call back. Sounded like Indian accent. Of course we did not return the call.

I just received a call from this guy and let it go to the answering machine. He passed himself off as a David Cooper with the same phone number you posted 1-209-565-6371. My first thought was WTF and googled dept of legal affairs. It seems these idiots have been doing this for years.

This guy Adam Walker left a message on my home phone. When I called the number, the phone was answered "Department of Legal Affairs, U.S. Treasury Department" and the guy said his name was Brian L. He sounded just like the Adam Walker who left the message. He asked me what number we were called on and I gave my home number. He said he couldn't talk to me because it was my husband they were after. My husband called the number from work and the call did not go thru. He then called from his cell and the same Brian L. answered. (This never happens with government agencies.) Told my husband that the Treasury Department was after him for tax evasion for 2009 for $4,000 and that they were simply notifying him but that an agent would be here to arrest him within 2 hours. Don't know if he was looking for payment or what. Dirty *&#$@%^! I reverse looked up the number and it is a cell phone. 209-565-6371.

A guy with heavy Indian accent called me today he said he was calling from the US Department of Legal affairs. He said he called to inform me that someone is pursuing a case against me. Sounded like a scam as usual, since these people don't have better things to do but try to get money out of people that work hard. I wish the government would shut down phone numbers like this that have complaints against them!!!

This message is intended for (my first/last name). (My first name) this is James Howard with the Department of legal affairs.

If for any reason you are busy to call back, I would suggest you to have your attorney to do it for you. As delay in calling us might end up into a legal mess for you.

Caller indicated that she was from the Department of Legal Affairs and told me that my daughter had a case pending against her and that if she didn't respond immediately her case would go to court within 24 hours. Rachel claimed that multiple notices had been mailed to my daughter. I protested that none were received. When I asked for the case number of the legal action she said she couldn't give it to me. When I asked to speak with her supervisor she responded, "oh, nonononono. Nonononono." I said, "You can and you will let me speak to your supervisor." She hung up. "Rachel" spoke with a heavy Asian accent and at times her syntax was unintelligible. At others it appeared she did not understand even simple English. My daughter spoke with Rachel's colleagu, Rober,t in a subsequent call and he said the "legal action" would not proceed if my daughter agreed to fund a "voucher." My daughter refused and Rachel's colleague said the police would be showing up in an hour to arrest her.
