AG Nessel Issues Statement About Fake E-mails
Monday, May 3, 2021

LANSING – Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel wants the public to be aware of e-mails attempting to impersonate her with a fake account.

The Department of Attorney General was made aware of an e-mail account that claims to be managed by Nessel. She asks citizens to not fall for a scam like this. Nessel says these individuals will do anything to try to impersonate someone in order to trick people into turning over personal information or even money.

Nessel urges everyone to remain skeptical when they receive messages out of the blue, e-mail or otherwise. While the e-mail does not explicitly ask for money or threaten legal action, the fraudulent message is similar to phishing e-mails that circulated last year by scammers, who were impersonating officials from the Department of Licensing And Regulatory Affairs.
