INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The Office of the Attorney General is warning residents of a email scam after numerous staff members were contacted regarding the phony email on Wednesday.

At around 12:30 p.m., staff members starting receiving calls from dozens of people nationwide asking about an invoice emailed to them that appeared to come from the Office of Attorney General.

The email stated: “Kindly find the enclosed invoice and advice ASAP. Thank you.”

It contained the name of an individual who works for a state contractor followed by an address and phone numbers corresponding to the Office of Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
