We have been made aware of an Unclaimed Property fraud scheme taking place a national level. A letter is being sent using the NAUPA (National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators) letterhead promising to return money from an unclaimed sweepstakes prize. They are asking for money to be able to move forward with the payment process. They may utilize other fraud tactics to change the appearance of this scheme. For more information, please visit the NAUPA website.
If you receive one of these letters please do not respond to it. Instead, please notify our office by calling 701-328-2800 or contact the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection and Antitrust Division at 800-472-2600.
