“This is officer Daniel Wiseman calling you from the legal department of Internal Revenue Services. This is in reference to a criminal law suit filed against you. Your case number is ******* . The moment you receive this message I need you to return the call. The issue at hand is extremely time sensitive. The hotline to my desk is 202846553. I repeat. It’s 202846553. Don’t disregard this message, do return the call now. If you don’t return the call, and I don’t hear from your attorney either, then the only thing I can do is wish you a good luck as the situation unfolds on you. Goodbye.”

The voicemail was left by (206) 984–0606.
