Scam Alert

Scam Alert

The Nebraska Attorney General's Office has issued a consumer alert to all Nebraskans. Calls are being made to unsuspecting residents stating that they are representing Nebraska law firms and they are collecting outstanding debts.

Attorney General Jon Bruning said Oct. 25, that residents should be aware if they receive a call demanding for payment for an unfamiliar debt, this may be a scam. Bruning said that if you were to receive such a call don't hesitate to ask questions be sure to request all information in writing. NEVER wire money or send prepaid debit cards to someone that you do not know.

In the past 30 days, the Attorney General's Mediation Center has received 25 Nebraska-based complaints regarding these fraudulent debt collection calls. The Nebraska Bar Association also has received reports of complaints from out-of-state consumers receiving scam calls from those falsely claiming to represent Nebraska law firms.
