I got a call today from “Danny Archer” informing me he was from the US Treasury and was calling to tell me there is a warrant for my arrest from 2007 back taxes. He then told me, (he called me by my current last name which was not my name in 2007). He told me he could keep me out of jail if I pay the $2,500 today. I was caught totally off guard. I told him I didn’t have the money to which he told me I could be arrested and taken before the Grand Jury. I also told him I was targeted for a scam about my bank card and am on high alert and is there some way he can verify who he is and the validity of what he was telling me. He then told me would I believe him if he sent the FBI to arrest me right now. My red flags were up all over the place.. so I told him. OK, send the FBI. He hung up. The numbers he was calling from were 202-591-1615, 514-571-0000 and the last one where I actually talked to him was 876-393-8746 and after doing a reverse look up this number is in Jamaica. Explains “Danny’s” accent. First red flag, the use of the wrong name. Second red flag, I have recieved a refund for all the years he mentioned. Third red flag, I had a different phone number and address.
