A social post from the County of Warren Virginia warns of a scam.

The Warren County Treasurer’s Office is warning of a mail scam in Front Royal Warren County.

If you receive a notice of intent to seize your property or assets and it provides an 833 phone number to call and surrender funds that is a scam.

The return address will read Tax Assessment Securities, Warren County, Seizure Unit.

The Treasurer’s Office of Warren County Virginia does not have a seizure unit.

The Treasurer’s Office will not send a notice of seizure.

Where the Warren County Virginia office will use two collection agencies for collection of delinquent taxes it is not Tax Assessment Securities.

Authorities have become aware of other scams like this recently in New Jersey.

Should you receive a letter like this call the Treasurer’s Office immediately at (540) 635-2215.
