COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- It’s a Call for Action investigation. Someone is leaving notes on the doors of local homes.
WINK News first told you about this on Thursday, when the Collier County Sheriff’s Office sent out a warning about the scam. Now, WINK News investigated and learned homeowners may need to do exactly what the notice says.
The generic notice is causing a lot of confusion. It’s hand written and doesn’t even say what company it’s from.
CCSO sent out a warning to the public after getting an email from a local attorney. The attorney was concerned that her client, who received the notice on their front door was getting scammed.
She tells WINK News she even contacted Bank of America’s fraud hotline who told her it was a scam. But, when WINK News called Bank of America ourselves, a spokeswoman told us they use the door hangers nationwide. However, only customers who are delinquent on their mortgage and could be facing foreclosure will get one.
