CARSON CITY, Nev. (KRNV & -- – Insurance Commissioner Scott J. Kipper is warning Nevadans about a telephone scam circulating in Nevada.

Kipper says the scam is that an automated calls consumers, saying that their zip code has been re-evaluated and that they now qualify for lower insurance rates. Consumers are then asked to “press one for more information,” if they do, they will be transferred to a voicemail system that asks them to leave personal information.

You can verify the license of an individual or company at DOI.NV.GOV or by calling the Division in Northern Nevada at (775) 687-0700 or in Southern Nevada at (702) 486-4009.

The Division of Insurance advises consumers to never accept unsolicited sales calls or calls from numbers you do not recognize; especially toll free 800, 877, 866, and 888 numbers. Automated calling systems are illegal, if you answer such a call and a recording is played, hang up as soon as possible.

Consumers who wish to file a complaint should contact the Federal Trade Commission at
