Lansdale Police said a Lansdale woman wasn't duped by the lastest attempt by someone claiming to be an IRS employee in a taxman scam.
On Saturday, the woman reported to police that she received a voicemail on Thursday on her home phone from a 585 New York phone exchange, police said.
When she returned the call on Saturday, a man identified himself as an employee with the IRS and told her that she owed back taxes from 2001 to 2012, police said.
The man told her that failure to pay would result in asset collections and a suspension of her driving privileges, police said.
She became suspicious and asked questions, and the caller then hung up the phone, police said.
The resident suffered no pecuniary loss as a result of her suspicions that she was dealing with a fraud.
Lansdale Police urge residents to talk to their elderly relatives and relatives living her from another country about such scams, as they are the two main groups targeted in this scam.
