State officials have issued a warning to residents that an unauthorized Access Nebraska website likely is a scam, seeking to defraud people.
The Department of Health and Human Services operates ACCESSNebraska through the web address www.accessnebraska.ne.gov. An unauthorized website has sprung up that ends with “.com” rather than the official “.gov” used by websites run by the government.
State officials warn that the unauthorized website likely has been created as an attempt to trick citizens into disclosing confidential information. It also could be used to deliver viruses or malware to a computer.
State officials urge citizens to carefully observe website addresses and only use correct government web addresses to access official websites. All DHHS websites end in “.gov” and include the words Official Nebraska Government Website at the top of all webpages.
