WOODLAND (CBS13) – Yolo County authorities are warning residents about a new scam that preys on people’s fears about losing their home.

A threatening email is being sent by scammers, according to a press release from the Yolo District Attorney’s Office. The email contains an official-looking foreclosure notice, authorities say, designed to try to scare people into making a rash decision to give scammers their credit card information.
