  • AG warns of another scam

    FRANKFORT, KY. – Kentuckians are being targeted over the phone by scam artists claiming to be a “Sergeant Joe Crews” who can help them resolve a federal warrant that has been issued against them.
    Attorney General Andy Beshear is warning consumers not to fall for this scam, the latest in a series of scams that his Office of Consumer Protection is tracking across Kentucky.
    “These scam artists are using fear to prey on Kentuckians,” Beshear said. “If you receive the call, hang up.”
