Kentucky Treasurer Says Suspicious Mail Making Rounds

Jul 28, 2014


Officials with the state treasurer's office are giving Kentuckians a 'heads up' about some questionable unclaimed property mailings.  

Kentucky Treasurer Todd Hollenbach says the postcards carry a Denver postmark.  Bethany Goad is with the Kentucky treasurer's office in Frankfort.  "They were finding in multiple reports, it was an internet company that was sending cards who was a debt collector and the cards were reported to be blue, yellow, orange, or green," said Goad.

Goad says state officials are not sure about the intent of the mailings but they want to alert any Kentuckians who might receive such a postcard that it is not from their office.   So far, Goad says the state treasurer's office has not received any calls about cards in Kentucky.  She says there are reports of such postcards going to residents in Colorado and Mississippi.
