LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) - The Nebraska Treasurer's Office says con-artists are mailing out fake postcards about unclaimed property.

The cards tell people to call a toll-free number and enter personal information.

Treasurer Don Stenberg says the cards, which are colored green, blue, yellow and orange, aren’t from his office and advises not to call the number.

Officials say the cards appear to have been sent by a debt collector.

Credible information about unclaimed property can be found on the treasurer’s website or by phone at 402-471-8497.
