A Dacula woman reported someone attempted to scam her last week over the phone by posing as an IRS agent and charging she owed back taxes.

The scam has been occurring all over metro Atlanta this year, and the IRS issued a scam alert earlier this spring.

The fraudulent callers use fake names, badge numbers and some may be able to recite the last four digits of your social security number.

 The Dacula woman told police the caller has been harassing her with many calls from a blocked phone number.

According to a Gwinnett Police incident report dated June 10, the woman told police the caller also told her “not to tell anyone what she is doing and to just get the money and send it to him.”
