Attorney General Tom Horne to Consumers: Be Aware of Fraudulent Grant Offers

Phoenix, AZ (Thursday, May 1, 2014) -- Attorney General Tom Horne is warning Arizona consumers, particularly students, to be wary of telephone solicitors who offer to send thousands of dollars of grant money if the consumer pays a couple hundred dollars through a money card. Green Dot cards are a popular method through which scammers now conduct business as they are as good as cash and cannot be traced. These reloadable debit cards are available at numerous locations and can be used much like a debit card.
