Nebraska State Treasurer Don Stenberg is warning Nebraskans to be aware of an unclaimed property scam through LinkedIn.
“This person out there (is) basically trying to impersonate me,” says Stenberg. “We’re warning Nebraskans not to fall for this scam.”
Stenberg says the fake account was up to 350 followers before it could be removed this week.
Stenberg says one Texas person contacted them to say he had been contacted by email with the false claim that he was heir to $12 million that was now lying dormant and unclaimed.
Stenberg says if you receive a notice of unclaimed property, you can check its validity by checking it out the State Treasurer’s website.
