SFMTA Warns San Franciscans about Illegal Curb Painting Scam
Release date: Oct. 21, 2011
*** Press Release ***
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which oversees all surface transportation in the City, has learned that illegal curb painting service notices have been distributed to homes within the City. The individuals responsible are requesting $20 to conduct the service. Residents should be aware that this is an illegal scam and is not endorsed by the SFMTA. The SFMTA’s policy is not to paint address numbers on the curb. In addition, the SFMTA Color Curb painting crew will never demand payment on the spot or to be left at the front door to collect.
The scammers have been going under the name of “Community Services”, “Community Address Painting Service” or similar names. The claim that they are a legitimate service is false. Residents should ignore the request and refrain from giving money to these individuals.
