Total SCAM: ‘Property Tax Assessment’ mailings

I received this very official-looking document in the mail today. And I’m used to getting official-looking mailers that purport to be sweepstakes prizes, fake checks, and so on, but it took me ten hard seconds of looking at this thing to determine it’s a total scam — and a particularly evil one. (Click on the image to see the whole thing, with my personal information blocked out.)

See this page and this news story, which comments on the scam. They’re talking about the exact same letter I received.

I called the San Francisco Assessor’s office, and they said anyone can request a reassessment for free. There’s no need to use this “service.”

Update: A Fresno TV station did a story tonight on the deceptive letters.
