City sounds alarm on new scam
The City of Cranbrook reports this morning that email scammers may be targeting city taxpayers.
“We’ve been hearing that some members of the public have been getting scam emails claiming to be from the City of Cranbrook. These emails claim that a recent payment to the city could not be processed,” alerted city Corporate Communications Director Chris Zettel.
“These emails are not from the City of Cranbrook. If any payments made to the city could not be processed, the City of Cranbrook would send residents a letter through the regular mail. The City of Cranbrook will not contact you by email,” he advised.
The City of Cranbrook is advising the public to be cautious of these types of email scams and to not provide personal, banking or credit card information.
