‘Yellow Notice’ Put Richland Residents on Scam Alert
This morning some Richland Residents are wondering if yellow notices taped to their mailboxes and doors is a scam. The yellow notice offers to paint reflective numbers on the sidewalks if you put $25 in an envelope and tape it to your door. The business owners made no contact with the home owners and people are supposed to trust that the $25 wont just be taken. Police say the contractor is not associated with the city and no one is currently licensed to provide that service according to news reports.
Police recommend not leaving money for people that leave yellow notes on your door. That sounds like good advice for me. I am sure the person collecting the envelopes is going to get a few questions from homeowners.
