Phone scam making the rounds in Dalton
An old phone scam is making the rounds, and Dalton police want to make sure you don't fall for it.
Residents in Dalton have reported getting a recorded robocall message from a scammer claiming to be either with the IRS, law enforcement or another agency.
The message tells residents that their social security number has been found as part of a criminal investigation. The person is then asked to call a phone number to verify information.
"This is, of course, a scam. Law enforcement agencies do not place calls with recordings," a Dalton police spokesperson said.
If you get a phone call asking for personal information, police say do not give it out.
