We usually hear of scams early on because owners call us to ask, "Can this be true?" Recently we've become aware of a new one we wanted to warn you about. It goes like this: Someone calls you to let you know of some bad news, it seems your timeshare resort is behind in your property taxes but if you will be so kind as to give the caller your social security number, he'll help you out. Somehow.
DON'T FALL FOR IT.
1) YOUR ASSOCIATION IS CURRENT ON ITS PROPERTY TAX, AND
2) NEVER GIVE YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER OVER THE PHONE.
If you want proof, here's how to get it. Go to the assessor's website below and get the schedule number of your unit. Next call the Grand County Courthouse @ 970.725.3347 and ask for the Treasurer's Office. Ask them there if the schedule is current on property taxes.
