*** ID Theft Alert: Thieves Targeting Lawyers' Offices
The Denver District Attorney's Office has announced that an ID theft ring has moved into Denver, and is primarily burglarizing law offices. The individuals scope out the offices for an opportune time to gather confidential information to be used in fraudulent activities. Most of the burglaries happen on Friday nights. This link takes you to a PDF document with more details, including photos of the suspected thieves. Do not hesitate to call the police if you see anything suspicious, and print out for them the above PDF.
