Yet another apparent scam is working its way through another Southcoast community.

Dartmouth Police say they've fielded numerous complaints regarding phone scams where the caller poses as an Internal Revenue Service representative. The caller will go onto say the resident owes back taxes, and may even have some personal information of theirs already, including address, date of birth, and the last four digits of their social security number.

Police say if you receive a similar phone call, do not provide any more personal information to the caller. Instead, hang up, and file a report with your telephone service provider.
