Scam mailing

Stowe town officials are warning residents of a scam mailing that looks as if it comes from the town.

The letter has a return address of “Administrative Offices, Stowe, VT 05672-5406.” The outside envelope is titled “Covid-19 Financial Relief Benefits, Time Sensitive Document - Open Immediately.” 

The envelope contains a realistic looking check from the “financial relief department,” but the letter did not originate from the town of Stowe or any other government agency.

Do not respond to the letter, as it is a scam, and discard the check.
