The Boulder County District Attorney's Office has received reports of scams and phishing emails related to the Marshall Fire. Here are a few things to watch for:

  • Insurance agents/companies reaching out unexpectedly to you and providing too good to be true options.
  • Contractors calling to give you a “deal” on fire clean up.
  • Charities reaching out to you requesting monetary donations in support of the Fire Department, Law Enforcement, or Victims.
  • Fundraisers or “Go Fund Me” pages that are not endorsed by the people or organizations they are supposed to help.
