Wyoming Attorney General's Office Warns of MoneyPak Scams

The Wyoming Attorney General's Office has seen a spike in complaints that involve the use of the Green Dot “MoneyPak” cards. MoneyPaks are sold at convenience stores and are used to pay bills online and make purchases

Senior Assistant Attorney General Clyde Hutchins says that unfortunately, the Green Dot MoneyPak have become one of the primary tools used by scammers to steal money from consumers. Hutchins explains how the scam works.

Hutchins explains that it's almost impossible to recover the lost funds with these types of scams.

Hutchins said that the best thing for people to do if they suspect fraud or scams is to contact their local law enforcement agency or the Consumer Protection Unit of the Wyoming Attorney General's Office at 1-800-438-5799.
