Tips to watch out for with scam letters include multiple misspellings and inaccurate information that doesn't make sense. For example, this one purports to be from a former County Judge who hasn't worked for the county in YEARS. Also, County government has nothing to do with issuing social security numbers. Not to mention words like "Respected" and "LOOSE" the account as opposed to "LOSE".

Very simple: Throw it away and carry on with your day. BUT if you're unsure, call the Smith County Sheriff’s Office at (903) 566-6600 and they will be more than happy to check it out for you but pay attention and don't panic if you receive one of these letters, just reach out to the County directly.
