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.)
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.
