LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Attorney General’s Office is teaming with U.S. Postal Service officials to try to protect people from mail fraud and scams.

Attorney General Andy Beshear and United States Postal Inspector Alejandro Almaguer announced the scam alerts campaign at Lexington’s main post office on Wednesday.

As part of the partnership, the USPS will place Scam Alert posters in more than 500 post offices in Kentucky. The information will provide customers with tips on how to avoid and report scams and instructions on how to sign up for the attorney general’s scam alerts program.

It’s part of Beshear’s efforts since taking office to better protect consumers from scams.
