Victim Location 83642
Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill
I came home on trash day to discover an official looking notice on our trash can located on the street stating the address numbers would be painted for police and fire/ ambulance assistance in reflective paint on our curb. We could opt in or opt out to place our address and family name on the notice and post to our front door for for collection. Thinking why would anyone opt out for safety assistance?, so I opted in. There was no mention of a charge other then the fee of $5 for a colored USA flag or a colored Broncos logo.
Upon returning home the next day, I noticed the number had been painted on our street curb but that there was a hand written envelope with a slip of paper on our door stating we owe $20 to the people who painted the numbers and to leave my payment in cash, check or Venmo under my doormat. RED FLAG! so I called the city to verify and they patched me through to the police where I filed a report.
