Cooperstown Woman Scammed Of About $20,000

February 19, 2018

State Police investigators say a Cooperstown-area woman has been scammed out of approximately $20,000 by a telephone caller posing as a representative of the Internal Revenue Service.

The money was sent to two separate addresses.

Investigators say this is one of many scams targeted mainly at elderly residents.  Others include someone posing as a law enforcement official claiming a grandson or granddaughter is in trouble with the law and bail money is needed, or as a computer technician insisting repairs are needed

Police advise you that requirements for sending large amounts of cash through the mail for something like tax services or computer repairs will nearly always be the result of a scam.

If you are unsure about a caller’s legitimacy, it is recommended you ask the caller specific questions, such as “Usually the IRS does not contact people by telephone, so why are you calling me?” or, “What is the name and phone number of the officer who made the arrest?”
