There have been multiple reports of Department of Justice representatives calling members of the public, particularly the elderly, and attempting to gain personal information.
“Those who receive these calls are encouraged not to provide personal information and to report these scams to the FTC via their website or by calling 877–FTC–HELP (877-382-4357). Fraud can also be reported to the FBI for law enforcement action at https://www.justice.gov/criminal-fraud/report-fraud.”
