Louisiana's attorney general is warning people not to believe an online scam that entices you with a fake settlement offer.
Attorney General Jeff Landry says his office has received calls from people who were contacted by online promoters. They say the promoters offer them cash over settlements between tobacco companies and the state.
Landry reminds everyone that individuals cannot receive cash from a tobacco settlement. The state receives the payment and uses it towards health and education programs.
