Scam letter targets Meck County property owners

Aug. 31. Mecklenburg County is warning property owners about a scam letter on what appears to be official letterhead regarding property revaluations.

In March 2023, the Mecklenburg County Assessor’s Office mailed revaluation notices to more than 400,000 property owners.

A letter printed on what appears to be Assessor’s Office letterhead makes a demand for a “clearance fee” due to a death and the property being transferred. The letter also includes a deadline for the property owner to vacate their property.

Neither the Mecklenburg County Assessor’s Office nor any other official agency would mail such a letter to a property owner. If you receive a questionable letter contact the Assessor’s Office at 980-314-4226 or email AssessorQuestions@MeckNC.gov.
