May 2006 – Magazine Scam
There is a scam going on in the neighborhood. A young man is going door to door selling magazine subscriptions, saying he is a nephew of someone else in the neighborhood (he got their name from going to their house before yours).
He claims he is raising money for the CU Drama Club. A call placed to the CU Drama department has confirmed that they are not involved in any fund raiser, especially one selling magazines door-to-door. There was a news report on FoxNews of the same scam taking place in Ft. Collins. In those cases, they were actually stealing identities after receiving personal checks from the victims. The police have been contacted regarding the latest in Bannockburn. We need to get the word out to as many neighbors as possible.
Please contact Amy Maier if you would like more information.
Summer 2008 – Burglaries is Franktown
Our neighborhood had a few robberies occur within Bannockburn and surrounding neighborhoods last year. The board would like to remind all residents to Be Alert, Stay Vigilant, note any unusual activity and any suspicious vehicles around your home and your neighbors. We need to make it difficult for them to hit another Franktown resident. If you see activity, phone the Douglas County Sherriff’s Department Immediately at 303-660-7579. The more calls they get the more likely they are to patrol our area. Also, email Amy Maier any activity you see or report so she can update everyone on our mailing list and/or post it to www.FranktownNews.com. Email address: Amy@amysellshomes.net.
February 2009 – Mail Stolen
We had mail stolen from a mail box in Bannockburn, In addition, someone showed up at their front door, (when the parents were not home) with torn up mail, saying that they had found open letters blowing around in their yard. Unfortunately the kids didn’t know the person.
This gives us all concern on several levels: First, watch your mail boxes and your neighbors and watch the cars driving in your subdivision, Second, report any unusual activity to the DougCo Sheriff’s Dept-they have said that even small bits of information can be compiled into a profile that can track down the criminals, and Third, warn your kids about opening doors to strangers-even though this might have been a good Samaritan in returning their mail, it was worrisome that the kids didn’t recognize the person.
According to the last conversation I had with one of the DougCO deputies, drug users love to hit mail boxes, and easy homes to break into. Make it hard for them! Right now, my husband and I are looking at mailboxes that need to use a key to open, or getting a p.o. box at the post office. Keep alert & watch your neighborhood!
