“I have gotten many of these, since my phone numbers are all over the internet, it can be very scary for someone who doesn’t know better. My mother, bless her, would be one of the people calling them up giving out her information too, so this makes me pretty passionate about helping people.” – Thomas J
If you received a call, and you know it is not real, with a different number, message or call me and give me the details so I can post it here and continue helping people to not get scammed or scared.
What A Real IRS Call Will Sound Like
The IRS will never call and say you are under investigation or that the police are after you. They are not allowed to discuss that information over the phone. They will say “We’d like you to come down to our the IRS office, there are some things we’d like to talk to you about regarding your taxes.” The real IRS will send you a letter first, for privacy reasons and only call as a second to last resort. They will state their name, and their IRS Member ID number.
The real IRS will mail you a letter first, when they cannot reach you by mail, they will try calling.
Wichita IRS Tax Office
I’ve talked with the IRS many times about these, and always expose the fraud of them as much as possible. The fact that they are scamming poor people like, my mother, is wrong.

The IRS is slammed with these type of calls to verify if the scams are real notices, the government is currently investigating leads to take down all these scam call facilities. They are not just in India.
Why Was I Notified by The IRS?
The IRS sends notices and letters for the following reasons:
- You have a balance due.
- You are due a larger or smaller refund.
- We have a question about your tax return.
- We need to verify your identity.
- We need additional information.
- We changed your return.
- We need to notify you of delays in processing your return. Read more about Understanding Your IRS Notification.
What The Bible Says About Fraud
Fraud is stealing, lying, and breaking the law all in one. Have you been committing fraud? Did you know lying on your tax return is a form of fraud. All fraud is sinful and no one who unrepentantly continues in it will enter into Heaven. How can someone thank God for treasures brought on by dishonest gain? It doesn’t matter if you think it’s fair or not.
Proverbs 20:17: Food gained by fraud is sweet to a man, but afterward his mouth is full of gravel.
Don’t say to yourself, well Uncle Sam always rips me off. God has nothing to do with evil. Scripture says “woe to those who call evil good and good evil”. Scams and fraud are brought on by the love of money and the lack of trust in God. Rather than trying to gain quick money which can easily disappear fast, let’s gain little by little with hard work. We should never live like this sinful world, but we should live a life of integrity. (Read More of that here)
What to do if someone has wrongly accused you of fraud when you know you didn’t do something? I’d like to refer to this quote:
Throughout life people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you bad. Let God deal with the things they do, cause hate in your heart will consume you too. — Will Smith
