LANE COUNTY, Ore. -- Lane County residents have been receiving false letters stating their property is at risk. 

The letter is a fake notice of warrant and tax lien. It claims the property seizure is imminent, and it includes a non-local number to call. 

Here are some red flags to lookout for if you receive a suspicious letter:

  • A full agency name is not provided
  • There isn't an agency address
  • There's a generic logo on the letter
  • Lane County doesn't have an "Office of Lien Filings"
