Just got a call from 618-465-8085 claiming that they are the IRS, Internal Revenue Services, and that they are filing lawsuit against me.
Why do I know that this is a scam.
- A little internet checking and you find out that this is a number that has been used several times in the past by fake tech support. Also there have been several people who have reported the same scam.
- The IRS notifies you by mail when you are in trouble. And they generally call for an audit well before any suit is brought to case.
Here are the instructions from the IRS (http://www.irs.gov/uac/Report-Phishing)

Thanks for the heads up! I did a quick phone number search and found this https://www.callercenter.com/618-465-8085.html. Looks like this person is serious about perpetrating the scheme.
