  • Attorney General Beau Biden warned Delawareans today to be on the look-out for two email scams reported to his office's consumer protection unit.
    The first scam is an email from a credit union, but really a scammer, seeking to verify recent activity on your account. The scammers are attempting for victims to give up personal financial information.
    The second scam is also an email from a private investor based in West Columbia who claims to have been contacted by a group of government officials from South Africa who need to transfer money into the United States.
    Delawareans should ignore both these messages. Consumers who believe they have already fallen victim to these scams should immediately contact their financial institution.
    For more information: (800) 220-5424 or email consumer.protection@state.de.us.
