Scam Alert – Tax Processing Unit of Randolph County

RANDOLPH COUNTY, N.C.  — Randolph County officials are warning the public of a scam involving a letter from the non-existent “Tax Processing Unit of Randolph County”. 

According to reports concerned citizens have reported receiving a letter in the mail with a bold heading claiming the notice is a “Distraint Warrant.”

This letter from the “Tax Processing Unit of Randolph County” attempts to scare residents to respond by stating “levying procedures will begin within 15 days of its receipt.” There is NO such County agency and this is an attempt to scam residents into paying a fake tax debt. This is a fraudulent notice from a fictitious agency and residents should not call the toll free number listed on the letter. 

If you receive this letter, report it to the Attorney General’s consumer toll free line at (877) 5-NO-SCAM or http://ncdoj.gov/complaint.
