There are several reports of imposters claiming to represent the El Paso County Assessor's Office coming from the Black Forest area.
El Paso County Assessor Mark Lowderman says, "My appraisers were out there the last two weeks, doing property inspections. We finished up last Friday, and won't be out there again soon except to respond to a request from a property owner."
The County Assessor's Office is warning everyone not to provide information to these people.
Employees of the County Assessor's Office have County ID's and business cards and drive official vehicles marked with the words Assessor's Department on the doors.
Impersonating a public official to gather information for personal benefit is a felony.
