On Tuesday, Attorney General Greg Zoeller announced that a new grant will help support their foreclosure prevention services for low-income residents.

The Indiana Attorney General is warning Hoosiers about a new phone scam where people claim to be representatives of the Internal Revenue Service.  More than two hundred Indiana residents have filed complaints in the last few weeks.

Attorney General Greg Zoeller’s office says the scam has cost people $5 million nationwide this year alone. 

Someone claiming to be from the IRS or the U.S. Treasury Department tells consumers they owe tax money and demands payment immediately, threatening to issue a warrant for their arrest otherwise. 

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller visited Fort Wayne to announce a new public awareness project aimed at fighting prescription drug abuse.
