Additional information about this scam:
Bhenchod man called me just now and asked how many employees I had for my non-existent business during covid times and I replied “5,000”, he then asked if I had an backtax I owed to the IRS which I said it was ranging in the amount of somewhere between $10,000-15,000 to about $20,000. My call was then transferred.
American “Alex” from “Alleviate Tax”, allegedly a tax resolution company - wasn’t happy after I explained I was contacted by letter and the letter actually said that he was in fact breaking the TCPA act and violating the fact my number was on the federal do not call list. He went on about something holding up or not holding up in the court of law, how apparently I’m wasting time and that causes me to be partly blamed for something. Yes, I made up a fake story because I wanted to see where this was going and that’s fine for me to do last I checked. He wasn’t having any of it and hung up.
@scamterminator2021 they don’t seem to be able to block at this time actually! a random agent will just answer then transfer you if you “qualify” for help. @BiggusPrickus @MajorLeeAwesome @JusticeinTexas @Jhawk @drwat @FIREFIGHTER619 @ReconScammers @Welshman @ObamaIsntReal

There is indeed an entity called “Alleviate Tax”: Tax Debt Relief Services – Stop the IRS Worry (alleviatetax.com)
17592 17th St Ste 200, Tustin, California, 92780, United States
Their executives appear to be: Annae Bosch, Jeff Bui, Susanna Virgilio, George Baseluos
Here is their BBB to complain to: Alleviate Tax LLC | Better Business Bureau® Profile (bbb.org)
NUMEROUS BBB Complaints about illegal telemarketing robocalls!!! We need to report them on the BBB for illegal behaviors!
What kind of company are they - Are they legit, scam, shady - are those at the current particular numbers simply impersonators (if “Alleviate Tax” are legit) or what??
Alleviate Tax is legit but they are scum. They appear to be robocalling people without PWC, as reflected on their BBB page, I think it is time to escalate the issue to ensure that they are held accountable. They seem to be using foreign illegal robocallers to drive call traffic to their legit call center.
In my experience, such shady entities as Alleviate don’t care about the law, as long as they can get away with their shady illegal robocalling. They often employee the very bottom of the bottom telemarketers, who are usually in the Philippines or India/Pakistan. In my experience, Filipinos have generally been the “bottom feeders” of the most gross and repulsive illegal telemarketing practices.
