A New Hampshire woman had a frightening experience when someone claiming to be from the Internal Revenue Service showed up at her home looking for money.
Lia Michaels, of Lebanon, said she received a call Thursday afternoon from some claiming to be from the IRS.
She said she was expecting a call so she picked up the phone.
"Probably shouldn't have because it was this person saying that they were from the IRS and that I owed the money and that they were going to come get me because I owed them money."
She hung up the phone, but minutes later, a white SUV pulled into her driveway.
"One of the people gets out. He's a white man and he's pretty tall, like 6 feet tall, maybe, and he says he's from the IRS and he's wearing a suit but he doesn't show me any identification and says if I don't pay him, that they're going to have to take me," Michaels said.
According to Lebanon police, the man "knocked on the door and told her to pay $15,000."
Michaels said she closed the door, locked it and called the police. The man took off as she called. She said, "it looked like there was a driver."
Police said the passenger knocked on the door.
"They knew stuff about me and it was very scary. Like, they knew my name and where I lived and they had my phone number and they knew my birthday."
Lebanon police Deputy Chief Phil Roberts said this encounter is new for them. They are still looking for a suspect in this incident.
"This is a first for us here in Lebanon, where we've ever received a report of someone actually showing up to your front door demanding payment," Roberts said.
