Massachusetts State Treasurer Warns Citizens of Fraudulent Emails Claiming a Donation From Powerball Winner
BOSTON — Illegitimate emails are being sent using the Treasurer’s name. They claim, “You have a donation from the former Massachusetts hospital worker, winner of the $758.7 million Powerball jackpot”. According to Treasurer Goldberg, these emails are a scam and have not been sent by her or the Massachusetts Office of the State Treasurer.
“It has come to our attention that emails using my name and likeness have been sent to residents across the state,” said Treasurer Deb Goldberg. “Our goal is to ensure that no Massachusetts citizen is taken advantage of as part of this scam.”
If you have any questions, please contact the Treasurer’s office at (617) 367-6900. You can view an example of a fraudulent email HERE.
