*****Special Notice:  Back in October 2018, the Colorado County Appraisal District (CCAD) was struck by a computer malware (trojan virus).  The CCAD has had a lengthy dealing with this issue, and we have taken the critical steps here in the office to safeguard the software and hardware here; the problem is cleared here internally.  There are times that our email is being "spoofed”, as is the case with the current "invoice" email from coloradocountycad@sbcglobal.net or any employee’s email (name@coloradocad.org).

These “spoofed” emails are not coming from internal office PC towers but are coming from an external spammer using a spoofed coloradocountycad@sbcglobal.net email account.  At this point, the CCAD offers its apology for any inconvenience or confusion this email has caused.  We ask that you please do not click on any link or open any attachment from the CCAD that was not formally requested to be sent via email.  The CCAD will NOT send "invoices" or any attachment through email without having prior consent or request from the individual. 

We recommend just deleting any “invoice” email or any unexpected, unsolicited email from the CCAD. 

As always, you may call the district if there are ever any questions.
