Fake Weed Violation Notices Sent to Grand Junction Residents
If you've recently received a notice from the City of Grand Junction about weed violation that looks like this, it's fake.
Officials at the City of Grand Junction Weed Abatement Program say the false notices contain the City's logo and the address and phone number for the Parks and Recreation department which are both incorrect. Also, some of these notices are being sent to people without violations.
The City says one of the key differences between the fraudulent notices and the real ones is the fake notices lack the property owner's name, address and parcel number.
Here's the complete example of the fraudulent notices being sent out.
