IRS Scam Phone Calls

A Upper Macungie Twp. resident reported receiving a voice mail from a person claiming to be a representative from the IRS. The scam artist's message was of the resident being on "final notice" and a "suit being filed against" the resident. Fortunately, the Upper Macungie Twp. resident was aware this was a scam and, therefore, did not incur a loss.

The Upper Macungie Twp. Police Dept. would like to remind its residents to be mindful of these types of scam phone calls, especially now that tax season is here.

If you do happen to receive one of these types of calls please remember the scam artists can be very persistent about sending them money immediately. Typically the money demand is to send cash via pre-paid cards or wire transfers which are almost impossible to track and recover any loss.

We hope this information is helpful and can avoid potential financial losses to the residents of Upper Macungie Twp.
