ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Insurance agency North Risk Partners sent out a warning for homeowners of a scam showing up in mailboxes.

For the past few weeks, the company has gotten numerous calls from its clients regarding letters they have received in the mail stating their home warranty is expiring.

According to North Risk Partners, the scam includes two letters to homeowners. The outside of the envelope leads people to think the warranty is somehow related to the homeowner’s insurance and bank. See photo below.
