Hawaii County police are warning the public of a person impersonating a county tax office employee.
A woman reportedly in an unmarked white vehicle told residents she was a contract hire for the tax office and was checking on properties for tax purposes, police said.
The woman, when asked, could not produce any county employee identification card or any other type of identification.
Police want residents to know all field work done by the Real Property Tax Office personnel have photo ID and business cards, and all field work is conducted using county vehicles with county seals on the side.
Residents should not give personal information to anyone without proper identification.
Police urge anyone seeing suspicious behavior to call police at 935-3311.
