AG issues a consumer alert after suspicious letters in Hoxie

HOXIE, AR (KAIT) - A handful of citizens recently notified Hoxie City officials about a suspicious letter they received in the mail requesting payment for insurance coverage on their waterlines. The letter said insurance was not covered in the individual's home insurance.

Katie Smith, who works for the city, tells Region 8 News a copy of the letter was sent to the Attorney General who is now issuing a consumer alert.

Coming up tonight on Region 8 News at 6 and 10, Amanda Hanson will have more from Smith about the water scam.
