News from the office of Kentucky State Treasurer Allison Ball
The Kentucky State Treasurer's Office has recently learned of a telephone fraud scheme listing the Kentucky State Treasury as its physical address.
Under this scheme, an individual is notified that he or she is eligible for a "free grant" of thousands of dollars. The individual is then instructed to wire money or purchase gift cards for the scammer in exchange for the promise of receiving this "free grant."
The Kentucky State Treasury will never request payment of money in exchange for a "free grant," nor will ever request individuals to purchase gift cards.
"I am committed to helping Kentuckians protect their hard earned money," Treasurer Ball said. "I encourage people to be very cautious anytime their personal or bank information is solicited."
If you suspect you are victim of a similar or other scam, please contact your local law enforcement authorities.
