Dunedin, FL — When Kristi Allen received a notice from the city in the mailbox last year — telling her she owed them $103,559 — she thought it just had to be a scam. It certainly is a scam, but one being carried out by her own government and one she is legally obligated to pay or face the consequences. Her alleged “crime” to justify the fine, which was twice her yearly income? Tall grass and a dirty pool.
