New Scam Aimed at Florida Homeowners

A fraud alert has been issued for all property owners of Miami-Dade County, Florida.  Taxpayers are being targeted via a fraudulent letter, which claims that property owners can receive “a 5% discount property tax relief” if they have a running Home Equity Line of Credit.

This scam is a means to trick homeowners into divulging financial information as seen by the text of the scam letter. If homeowners have already sent their bank statement and/or check, they are being urged to contact their bank immediately.

The Florida Office of the Property Appraiser issued the warning.

Additionally, if you have received this letter, you may notify Miami-Dade Police’s Economic Crimes Bureau at 305-994-1000.
