REYNOLDSVILLE – A Reynoldsville woman who thought she was paying on a debt lost a large sum of money in a theft earlier this week, reported the state police at DuBois.
According to state police, a man who identified himself as “Richard Harris” called the victim, advising she owed money to the Internal Revenue Service.
State police say he instructed the victim to purchase Wal-Mart gift cards and to provide him with the card numbers to resolve her debt.
