Property Tax Scam in Baltimore city
Today, the Baltimore City Department of Finance learned of fraudulent phone calls made to senior citizens regarding their property tax bills. Residents were told by individuals posing as City officials that they owed money to the City, and that someone would come to their house, in person, to collect. City officials urge anyone who received the phone call to contact 3-1-1 to file a report.
âIt is important that residents know of this scam, and that they are armed with facts in case they are contacted,â said Edward Gallagher, Director of the Department of Finance. âRememberâ”at no time will a City official contact you in person regarding your property tax bill. Any correspondence regarding that issue will be conducted by mail.â
According to Department of Finance, no one contacted by the scam-artists was behind on their tax payments.http://dmvblogspot.bloggieblog.com/4367/4367.html
