Nebraska officials are warning people to be vigilant about using correct state government websites before providing sensitive information.

The state Department of Health and Human Services says an unauthorized website with a similar web address as one that provides an application for economic assistance could be a trick. Officials say it could be a way to get people to type in confidential information. The bogus site also could deliver a computer virus or malware.

The proper state website ends in ".gov" and the fake website ends in ".com." Officials say all DHHS websites end in ".gov" and include the words "Official Nebraska Government Website" at the top of website pages.
