    Versions of this are common enough that we have an automod script for it. I think it was: !tax

    Yes, but the calls I’ve gotten ask for gift cards from Walmart or Best Buy, never had them ask for Zelle before.

    Similar to the “Your SSN is being investigated for fraud. Pay with Apple gift cards or you’ll be arrested” type scam.

  4. You can ask for their Zelle info and report their account as a potential scammer/victim(money mule).

    The only official correspondence from any US Federal agency will be via US mail (i.e.snail mail). Additionally, you can’t be fined without some kind of judicial action and you must be served official notice in person before any judicial action.
