Did anyone else get an email from CPW about past due fees for PP?

Sounds like a scam on top of a scam.
Look at the email headers. If it's an authentic message from Aspira, the sender info in the message header should look something like:Authentication-Results: spf=pass (sender IP is 22.214.171.124) smtp.mailfrom=spark.aspiraconnect.com; dkim=pass (signature was verified) header.d=mail.aspiraconnect.com;dmarc=pass action=none header.from=mail.aspiraconnect.com;compauth=pass reason=100 Received-SPF: Pass (protection.outlook.com: domain of spark.aspiraconnect.com designates 126.96.36.199 as permitted sender) receiver=protection.outlook.com; client-ip=188.8.131.52; helo=mta-216-165.sparkpostmail.com; pr=C Received: from mta-216-165.sparkpostmail.com (184.108.40.206) by DM6NAM12FT094.mail.protection.outlook.com (10.13.178.239) with Microsoft SMTP Server (version=TLS1_2, cipher=TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384) id 15.20.6254.6 via Frontend Transport; Thu, 23 Mar 2023 14:40:19 +0000

Never heard of any past due fees for points. Sounds like a scam to me as well.
Definitely a scam.
Net 30, 2%10 on points purchases
Yup. I had to pay $100 for my 2019 moose point. What a crock.
Report this to the CPW main office in Denver and let them know. Paul
Sounds like it is not a scam. How did they not charge the correct fee for the PP in the first place?
Can you post a screenshot of the email? Sandbrew
CPW charges for pref points after the draw is completed. 2023 draw hasn't been completed yet so no charges for 2023 PPs have been made. So if CPW has a "past due fee" for a PP right now then it has to be from 2022. If your credit card failed in 2022 they simply wouldn't have given you the PP unless you rectified it immediately. They don't give PPs without payment. I don't see how there can be a "past due fee".
Preference points for Deer, Elk, Pronghorn and Bear have zero fees. The only species for which there's a point fee are Mt Goat, Moose and Sheep, and those draws are long-since completed for 2023.
I'd go ahead and buy 20 or 30 of them if you can.
“I'd go ahead and buy 20 or 30 of them if you can.”
Haha when point creep gets you down, break out the wallet and fight back.
Ask if they can also handle payment for your vehicles extended warranty while your at it.
Sticksender is correct.
Sticksender is correct.
Strange, it cost me $9.17 to apply for a preference point last year. How are you guys getting them free?
Call the state's AG and ask if this is legit.
Aspen: Non-resident application processing fee is 9.17 to get into the limited draw, whether you draw a license or not, whether get a point or not. You can't complete an application without paying that fee, and they're not going to be sending you an email afterwards, asking for PP fees, since there aren't such fees any for Deer-Elk-Prong-Bear. Which was the OP's topic.Of course they also tag you for the habitat stamp fee of 10.59 if you're 18-64 years of age. Plus the required qualifying license purchase fee, typically the 86.50 small game license for NR.Only for M-S-G, do you have to pay an extra fee to get a point. Of course that may soon be expanded to other species, but for now fortunately it's not.
It cost me a $9.17 fee to apply specifically for a preference point. It's 100% success, there is no draw to see if I might get one. They might use their draw computer system to facilitate my purchase but it's not really a draw. It's an automatic issue if I apply and my Credit Card covers the fee. They charge that fee when they issue my PP. Any sane person would call that a PP fee.
But if you simply exist here to play word games for the sake of pointless arguing then I'll not participate.
