This scam was reported in Dunn County, which is just a few hours from the Twin Ports. Officials in Dunn County warned locals about the scam just a few days ago, saying that scammers were targeting people in the area via phone call.
The Treasurer's Office in Dunn County was the one that was notified about the scam. According to their post, at least one person in the area received a call from someone pretending to be an official. The scammers said that the taxed the victim filed in the county were "delinquent" and as a result, their property was going to be taken.
If you get a call like this, hang up and contact the organization or office the scammer claims to be. That way, you don't get scammed out of money or have your information stolen. With so many tax scams every year, it can be hard to keep track of what is or isn't legitimate.
