As your Adams County Treasurer and a board member on the Adams County Aging Network, I am hearing that the scammers are out in full force.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL!
Don’t provide personal information or credit card numbers to anyone over the phone. AND know that the police will NEVER ask you to send them money to bail a family member out of jail.
As a reminder, I am reposting this warning…
I’m bringing awareness to another predatory tactic against homeowners with tax liens.
Please contact my office directly atif you receive this notice or anything resembling someone trying to help you with a tax lien.
ADAMS COUNTY, Colo — The Adams County Treasurer is warning home owners of a scam that is spreading around the state, and if you fall victim you could end up losing your home.
Many homeowners with delinquent tax liens have received a letter threatening that the ownership of their home could be in jeopardy and an offer to help pay their tax lien.
“It’s kind of a scare tactic and our message today is that if you get a letter like this or something that resembles this, it’s best that you call the treasurer’s office,” Adams County Treasurer Brigitte Grimm said.
Adams County told the FOX31 Problem Solvers that they are seeing numerous records requests for the list of 2,100 delinquent tax liens in their county. A sign that scammers are looking for targets.
“We got a number of calls yesterday, so we suspect this letter just went out,” Grimm said. “There is no third party that can assist in reducing your taxes.”
Grimm told the Problem Solvers there’s nothing to negotiate when it comes to delinquent tax liens held against your property, so these people that say they can help you – can’t.
“We want to make sure nobody is losing their homes to unpaid taxes,” Grimm said. “But we also want to make sure there is not another party involved that is possibly charging a fee for a service they can’t provide. That has to come from the treasurer’s office.”

MNCC Leadership Program / Month 6 – Government Day
EXCELLENT day at the Capital. Watched both Chambers at work, heard from our Legislators, worked on balancing the budget (my favorite) and climbed 170+ steps to the top of the capital.
