Fraud Alert! Family Member Criminal Conviction Fee??

There’s a new scam we recently heard about. A resident receives an official-looking letter from a law firm in the state, outlining a family member’s prior criminal conviction, describing the verdict, and then stating there is an outstanding fine or fee. The letter directs the resident to send a check to clear the expense. If you receive a letter like this, contact local law enforcement.

Be a fraud fighter!  If you can spot a scam, you can stop a scam.
