Attorney General Curtis Hill announced today that he and his staff interacted with more than 7,000 Hoosiers at the Indiana State Fair this month.
During the fair’s 17-day run, staff members also found more than $100,000 in unclaimed property for fairgoers who stopped by the Attorney General’s booth.
“Our Unclaimed Property Division has done an outstanding job of safeguarding and returning millions of dollars in unclaimed property,” Attorney General Hill said. “We value every opportunity to reach out to Hoosiers from all across our great state and provide them with direct services from our office.”
On Aug. 9, Attorney General Hill also sponsored “Consumer Protection Day” at the fair. Besides operating the office’s booth, staff members circulated throughout the fairgrounds to distribute helpful information about identity theft, ongoing scams and other consumer issues.
