CONCORD - The state Attorney General's office issued a warning today regarding a scam using his name and title in a forged letter that appears to notify the recipient that a legal proceeding has been initiated against them.

The letter, which appears to be on Department of Justice letterhead and signed by Attorney General Gordon MacDonald, also requests a payment from the recipient as part of the legal proceedings.

A replica of the letter being sent to a number of New Hampshire residents.

The Office of the Attorney General would under no circumstances notify individuals by mail that they have been charged with a crime nor would this office issue a letter requesting payment in order to resolve criminal charges.

If you have received a communication that appears to be from this office, you may report or verify its authenticity by calling the Consumer Complaint Hotline at 1-888-468-4454.
