Archuleta County notified the public on Tuesday that citizens may receive a letter claiming to be from the “Tax Resolution Unit” of Archuleta County and entitled “Distraint Warrant.” Archuleta County does not have a “Tax Resolution Unit” and these letters are not from Archuleta County. The county warned: “These letters are fraudulent and are likely an attempt at identity theft or to scam money from citizens. Please do not call the toll-free number listed in the letter or respond to it in any way. Simply dispose of it in the trash.”
