I got a suspicious phone call from a man saying he was from the DAG (dept of the attorney general) with the case number 252625-18 regarding a complaint that has been forwarded to his office, stating he needed to speak with me in regards to the matter
You can call your state Attorney General. It sounds like a scam. Most AG's offices don't call themselves "Department of the Attorney General, " for one thing. It would be "This is Jane Doe with the Kansas Attorney General's office of ______________________"
