Harassing calls from IRS impostors in Forsyth County



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A woman was told to pay $1,300 or else her daughter would be arrested, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

A woman in the 2000 block of Marthasville Trail told deputies she has been getting numerous calls since May 23.

In one incident, a man who called himself “Jacob” with the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office told the woman officers were on the way to her house.

They said her daughter would be arrested because she failed to file an “IRS Form 31.” The caller told her to bring $1,300 to the Home Depot off Market Place Boulevard.

The woman let deputies hear voicemails from other attempts from men claiming to be with the “Tax Authority Department,” “District Columbia State Police Department” and the “Federal Crime Enforcement Network.”

The woman said she never paid any money to the imposters.
