Nebraska attorney general warns against new scam PDF Print E-mail

LINCOLN (AP) — Attorney General Jon Bruning is warning Nebraskans to watch out for fake prize letters that may appear to be from a state agency.

He says in the past month, several people have received letters that claim they’ve won a prize from the state’s Commissioners of Registration. 

To claim their prize, they’re told to sign the form and return it along with a payment of $20.

He says the mailings look official and include a fake agency seal, but he’s calling it a scam. He says there’s no state agency called the Commissioners of Registration.

Those who receive such a notice are urged to call his office at 800-727-6432
