Currituck County is warning of a scam reported recently involving something coming in the mail that resembles a mailing from the county, but is a fake.
If you receive a notice from “Tax Processing Unit, Currituck County, Public Judgment Records”, this is not something issued by Currituck County,” according to the county’s Facebook page.
The notification asks for a large payment to avoid having Social Security benefits seized and wages garnished.
Anyone who receives such a mailing is asked to report it to the Currituck Sheriff’s Office at 252-453-8204.
