Treasurer Warns of Scammers in Pennsylvania

November 8th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

Pennsylvania State Treasurer Stacy Garrity is warning that scammers are calling residents who have applied for a Property Tax Rebate and asking for bank account information in an effort to steal personal information. The caller claims to be from the Treasury and asks for a bank account number — supposedly so Property Tax Rebate payments can be made by direct deposit. The Property Tax Rebate Program benefits Pennsylvanians age 65 and older, widows and widowers age 50 and older, and people with disabilities age 18 and older. The maximum standard rebate this year is $650.
