Vt. Lawmaker's Facebook account hacked, possible scam

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

A Vermont lawmaker says her Facebook account has been hacked.

Representative Diane Lanpher says an individual or group was able to send out messages to her contacts.

Those notes were informing people that they were eligible for "unclaimed funds" from the U.S. Treasury Department.

Lanpher says the messages are a scam and that they are not coming from her.

Vermont's Attorney General's office is aware of the problem and is warning Facebook users to be on the lookout for the hoax.
