Town residents warned about third-party bill-paying site

The Town of Apple Valley is warning residents not to remit funds through the on-line bill paying site DOXO.

At least three residents have paid money to DOXO believing that their funds would be forwarded to the Town by the company on their behalf. To date, the Town has not received any funds from DOXO.

'The Town does not have a contract with DOXO and the on-line bill paying site has not been authorized or licensed to use the Town's logo on their website,' said Assistant Town Manager Marc Puckett. 'At the very least, this company is illegally using the Town's logo, photos and contact information on their website to mislead the Town's residents that their site is legitimate.'

Staff has been in contact with the Sherriff's department regarding this matter.
