DUNWOODY, Ga. — A woman notified police May 31 of fraudulent phone calls made to her number. She said a man called claiming to represent the IRS and that the agency had opened a case against her. He then proceeded to tell her that payments were required to clear the matter. The woman provided the caller with her Social Security number and the location of her bank. The victim did not provide any further bank account information.

The responding officer called the suspicious number and was placed on hold. After hanging up and calling again, there has been no answer. The officer informed the victim to report the potential fraud to her bank, the IRS and credit bureau.
