Colorado Springs, CO asked in Tax Law for Colorado

Q: Hello, can I be notified of a case filing via VM?

Ive been called two times now by an "Unknown number" who is leaving voicemails and leaving a case number as well as saying my place of residence and living is known and if I do not return the call. They will come to me? Can I be notified of something like this Via voice mail? Does this sound like a scam?

A: Probably a scam. I'd call the El Paso Sheriff's dept and ask if there's a warrant out for you just to be sure.

If they identify who the are, police, IRS, CDOR, etc..., look up the number form a verified source and call in and tell them what happened and see if they are trying to contact you.

If it is a legitimate agency they'll have your info in the system and can tell you what's going on.

The major clue is 1. legitimate agencies don't make threats, they just tell you how it is; and 2. they don't demand payment through cash, gift cards, money orders, etc... they tell you where to go top pay the agency.

If all else fails lawyer up and repeat after me " You can discuss this matter with my attorney".

Good luck.
