Possible "IRS" Phone Scam

This is an email that we got today from a woman in Richland advising of a possible telephone phishing scam with a caller claiming to be from the IRS:

I have gotten 4 phone calls this morning from 202-459-6109.   The pre-recorded message is of an Asian sounding male, purportedly an IRS agent, calling with an important message concerning a law suit that is being filed against me. It goes on to warn, if I don’t call back this number, asking for Dean Jones, all he can do is to wish me luck.   I have looked the number up on the internet, and many complaints are being lodged about this very phone call.   I have not called back the number, but am worried that unsuspecting receivers of these calls may be scammed into something.   Thank you.
