Pushy 'IRS' agent dupes couple in Milton


April 13, 2014
MILTON, Ga. – A "pushy IRS agent" called a Morris Road couple and allegedly stole $2,000 from them.

The victim told police she was repeatedly called by a man claiming to be an Internal Revenue Service agent. Over the course of three days and numerous calls, he said the victim owed the IRS money and she needed to pay up immediately.

She was instructed to purchase a "Green Dot" pre-paid card from Walmart for $1,900 and paid the "agent."

This is part of a common scam, police say. Government and law enforcement agencies do not demand money over the phone.
