scam alert
Be on the lookout for scams targeting the recent collapse of Epic Alliance.

NORTH BATTLEFORD - The City of North Battleford has issued a warning to property owners about a fraudulent letter being sent regarding taxes.

According to a city news release, it has come to their attention that the letters are being sent claiming there are property taxes owing; the letter further requests to call a number provided.

The city is urging anyone who receives these letters to not call the number listed. The city further states the RCMP has been informed about these potentially fraudulent letters. 

The city is stating these letters appear to be targeting Epic Alliance properties. Epic Alliance Inc. is the real estate company that is in the news over its management of hundreds of properties in Saskatoon and North Battleford on behalf of investors. 

Epic Alliance collapsed in January of this year, impacting about 120 investors who had sunk hundreds of thousands of dollars into properties under their "Hassle-Free Landlord Program." An estimated 100 properties in North Battleford are affected.

The financial collapse is now before the courts and the Court of Queen's Bench has appointed Ernst and Young to investigate what happened to investors' money.

Those with inquiries about property taxes in North Battleford are encouraged to call City Hall at 306-445-1700.
