Indian Mound, TN asked in Tax Law, Real Estate Law and Gov & Administrative Law for Tennessee

Q: A man came to my door fraudulently claiming to be a tax assesor informed me that he was here to do building

And structure measurements to be certain the county had the correct information .I only agreed because he claimed to be the tax assessor. I became suspicious and called the county assessor and was informed that he had not been here since 2021.i later discovered he was hired by my neighbor posing as an assessor. Do I have standing to demand or file to require my neighbor to give the mans real name and prosecute him and my neighbor for impersonating a government officer to gain illegal access to my property. I would have refused if I had known that he wasn't who he claimed to be for fraudulent access to my property and buildings ?
