From the CDPHE Public Information Officer:
SCAM ALERT: Some restaurant owners have reported receiving a call from someone claiming to be a inspector. The caller said an inspection needed to be scheduled, and asked for a credit card payment to secure it. That's not us folks. We do not charge for inspections. If you get a similar call, please report it to (303)692-3645 ext. #1. All State and Local inspectors carry employee identification. If you ever want to verify if someone is a health inspector, call
