Resident targeted in phony IRS agent scam
April 23, 2014, 05:00 AM

South San Francisco police are seeking a suspect who tried to defraud a resident earlier this month using a “Green Dot” payment card scam.

On April 10, the suspect called a resident in the 100 block of Longford Drive and identified himself as an Internal Revenue Service agent, police said.

He asked her to transfer more than $1,000 via “Green Dot” cards to pay a delinquent tax bill.

The resident initially agreed to pay the money, but when she learned of the scam, she did not complete the transaction.

The suspect called again on Friday and left a voicemail identifying himself as an IRS legal representative and requested that the resident call him, according to police.

South San Francisco police have previously warned residents about the scams and are urging people to not send money or provide the callers with any personal information. The scams can be reported to police at (650) 877-8900.
