Glenwood Springs police warn of suspicious ‘bank’ solicitation

GLENWOOD SPRINGS — Local police are asking residents to be on the lookout and beware of a scam involving fliers being placed on the doors of houses claiming to be a solicitation from a bank.

According to Glenwood Springs Police Chief Terry Wilson, residents in the 23rd Street neighborhood reported finding the “door-hanger” type envelopes on their front doors over the weekend, providing a number to call for information about Bank of America.

Upon doing so, Wilson said the recorded message asks for the person’s bank account number and/or Social Security number.

“We don’t have much to go on, but we want people to beware and ask them not to respond [to the solicitation],” Wilson said. “Banks don’t do business that way.”

Anyone who sees someone distributing the flyers, or who has other information, should call the Glenwood Springs Police Department at (970) 384-6500.
