Martin warning residents to ignore fake Lehigh County survey

District Attorney Jim Martin is alerting residents of Lehigh County to ignore a survey they may receive in the mail entitled “Lehigh County Opinion Survey.”

According to Martin in an email to The Press July 21, residents have notified his office and other county agencies about receiving the mailing promising a $2-gift card for completion of the “confidential, nonpartisan survey of people in Lehigh County.”

The mailing refers residents to a website where they are asked to answer questions.

Martin said this mailing is not from Lehigh County and detectives with the Lehigh County District Attorney’s Office are investigating the source of the document.

Upon further investigation, it has been determined the survey appears to be political in nature.

It was not sent by the County of Lehigh.
