Small Business Owners Beware!

This scam seems to be targeting small business owners. Crooks are trying to scare them into paying a bill they don't really owe. Don't be bullied!

Thanks to Don and Hazel Peterson of Woodland Park for passing on this warning.  They own a printing company which was targeted. 

The scam works like this.  A man calls and claims he's representing an attorney in Houston.  He says your business is about to be sued and you'll be getting a visit to your home and/or business soon.  The man also claims he's going to be taking pictures and collecting financial information.

These are scare tactics to get you to pay him off before he can pursue his alleged case.  Don't believe a word of it.  The Petersons received three calls in a row and hung up on him each time.  It finally worked.

Don't let a crook bully you.  You don't have to talk to thugs trying to verbally strong arm you.  If you continually are badgered call the District Attorney's Economic Crimes office or the Colorado Attorney General.
