The Hamilton County Assessor of Property Marty Haynes is warning the public about a new phone scam.

Haynes says to be aware of calls regarding a summons to court from the Assessor’s Office and asking for personal information.

Haynes says “My office does not summons anyone to court. Also, we never ask the public for personal information, social security number, bank account, etc. The only reason my office would call a property owner is to schedule an appointment to review property values.”
