Beware of "Department of Treasurer" hoax in Medina County

(continued)

The phone call soon went to a request to send money to prevent police action. There was an attempt by the phone caller to keep the residents on the line for a long period of time.

"This is a fraud that has been perpetrated in other parts of the country," (Auditor Mike) Kovack said, "But it's the first time we've seen it here." He indicated the homeowners said the caller spoke broken English, making it difficult to understand. Additionally, when questions were asked, the caller would put the homeowner on hold for a period of time before returning.

Kovack warned Medina County residents to remember not to give out any personal information to inquiries such as this over the phone, "and never make arrangements to send money to a phone call out of the blue like this." Kovack advised anyone receiving phone calls to contact their local law enforcement agency.

County auditor says storm damage can be deductible

Medina County Auditor Mike Kovack is offering the following advice: if you sustained storm damage on real property, make sure you fill out a Destroyed or Damaged Property form with the County Auditor's office. This will take the destroyed value off your taxes next year.

You must file the form by the end of this year to get full credit. Please note that this applies only to real property, i.e, that on which you pay property taxes. Trees, bushes, cars, etc., do not qualify. For questions, call 330-725-9754.

Loans may be available for residents, businesses to deal with flood damage

Following the heavy rains of May 12-13, 2014, Lorain County received a declaration allowing residents and businesses to apply for low interest SBA loans. This allows contiguous counties, including Medina, to receive the same assistance. Click below for more information.
