WLNS.com is warning East Lansing residents of a scam making the rounds on the city's streets, specifically, the curbs of city streets.

According to the report, people are spray painting home addresses on the curb sides of city residences. Once the curb is painted, the scammers are leaving notes for homeowners in their mailboxes, asking for payment on behalf of the city.

But, East Lansing officials have not contracted these services to anybody. Also, its Department of Public Works has not been involved in the painting of curbs, according to the report.
