Attorney General Sorrell Warning Of Money Scams

Print More

The Vermont Attorney General’s office says it’s getting an increasing number of complaints about "free money" and other financial fraud scams.

Attorney General Bill Sorrell says complaints have been received about grandparents and friends or relative impostor scams in which someone claiming to be a loved one in trouble in another country seeks money by wire transfer.

Other scams involve sweepstakes, lottery, and grants in which people are told they have won money but need to make a wire transfer or make a payment by check or credit card.

Sorrell is reminding people to not give financial information to any solicitor unless you have verified that the source is legitimate.
