After being alerted to a fraudulent website claiming to sell Colorado fishing licenses, Colorado Parks and Wildlife urges people to be wary of third-party sites offering deals on CPW products.
CPW’s online shop and hundreds of license sales agents across the state are the easiest, most secure and best-priced methods of purchasing fishing licenses.
There is no guarantee that licenses purchased through third-party sites will be legitimate products or that they will ever be delivered to the purchaser. Fraudulent sites often sell licenses at a significantly marked-up price for as much as $134, nearly $100 more than a valid resident license.
The agency’s official product purchasing website is a secure method of purchasing all CPW products online. Fraudulent third-party sites may use or sell personal information from the purchaser, including Social Security or credit card information. The best way to ensure private data is not maliciously collected from a third-party site is to avoid such sites altogether.
Starting March 1, CPW will be selling 13-month fishing licenses. Customers will be able to purchase these valid licenses at www.cpwshop.com, a CPW park or office or from an authorized Colorado sales agent in person.
