Yet Another Scam!

Scam Header

SCAM ALERT

The Minnesota Department of Revenue is warning customers about a scammer knocking on doors posing as an agent from the Department of Revenue. The scammer demands that the victim make immediate payment of back taxes owed.  If you encounter a similar scam, please contact your local law enforcement.   

The department never contacts customers demanding immediate payment without first mailing a letter, and the department will not threaten to send the police to a customer’s home.

Here are four things a scammer may do, but the department does not:

  • Contact you about your balance due without contacting you by mail first.
  • Demand payments without contacting you by mail first. 
  • Require that you provide payment information over the phone. 
  • Threaten to send the police or law enforcement.  

If you are concerned about a potentially fraudulent visit, call, or email from someone who represents themselves as being from the Minnesota Department of Revenue, please call us at 651-296-3003 or 1-800-657-3909. An authorized Minnesota Department of Revenue staff member will be able to determine if the contact you received was legitimate.

Use caution and only provide personal information, including credit card information, when you are absolutely sure the situation is legitimate.

Got books???

 

The Friends of the Library are in need of gently used books and movies for their used book store.
stack of booksThe money raised from the book store is used to support the library.  The Friends give money for books, programming, the summer reading program and technology needs for the library.  These are items that would not be possible for the library to purchase without the generosity of the Friends of the Library.
