Residents warned of land tax scam
Residents have been warned by police and the Office of the Tax Commissioner to ignore any phone calls they may receive regarding payment of overdue land tax.
“We are aware that some residents have already received calls from unknown persons claiming to be with the Office of the Tax Commissioner or the Bermuda Police Service,” said a police spokesperson.
“These callers demand payment of overdue land tax within two hours to avoid arrest. This is a scam and if such a call is received, no payment details or personal information should be given.”
For any questions or concerns regarding land tax matters, contact the Office of the Tax Commissioner at 298-6351, 297-7537 or e-mail email@example.com.
Any incidents of suspected fraud should be reported to the Financial Crime Unit on 247-1757 or via the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
