Government Imposter Scams

Government Imposter Scams

August 3, 2016

My Consumer Protection Division reports receiving several contacts from businesses asking about a suspicious email pretending to be from “The Office of The Attorney General.” The email in question is bogus and its attachment should not be opened; recipients should delete it.

I am issuing the attached Government Imposter Scams Consumer Alert to warn Michiganders about this and similar scams.

The alert is also available on the Attorney General’s website (www.mi.gov/ag).
