Canton BBB Office Warns of Tax Scam Using U.S. Mail

CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – The Canton Better Business Bureau is warning about a scam letter that some local residents are getting in the mail.

It claims to be a “distraint warrant”, indicating back taxes are owed to The Federal Tax Authorities, even though it purports to be sent from a non-existent Stark County tax office.
