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.
