The latest scam New Yorkers have to worry about comes from “Vermin Control of New York” — a sham entity demanding that homeowners mail $120 checks for “assessment and eradication of vermin” to an address in Queens, city officials said Friday.

“This unusually sophisticated fraud should serve as a wake-up call to all New Yorkers,” Levine told The Post on Friday.
