(AUBURN) - The DeKalb County Sheriffs Department says you should be aware of a phone scam which is calling local numbers. According to a posting on their Facebook page, the Sheriffs Department says a woman with an accent recently called a home and told a man his wife is in legal jeopardy for not returning a call about a criminal investigation. He was then told to call 202-241-6171 as soon as possible so that the matter could be resolved.

He called the I.R.S. and was told they never call. Instead, they always contact people in a letter. The man was also told this has been happening often and that the person calling always with an accent. In addition, the call has a Washington D.C. area code.
