“Look-alike DMV sites charge Nebraskans unnecessary fees to process online applications,” said Bruning. “Official websites for the state of Nebraska end in .us or .gov. Consumers should be mindful of a site’s web address before entering any personal information.”

If you or someone you know has mistakenly provided financial information to a look-alike site, contact your banking institution and file a complaint with the Attorney General’s Office Consumer Protection Division at (800) 727-6432 or

In addition, monitor credit and banking statements closely and report any unauthorized activity to financial institutions and major credit bureaus.
