Attorney General Jim Hood says fraudulent Web sites and e-mails are offering consumers help in getting money from President Barack Obama’s economic stimulus package.

The scams vary, but most ask for consumer information such as bank account or credit card numbers.

So far, Hood’s office has had one complaint from a Mississippi resident. Jan Schaefer, his public information officer, said the staff also has fielded several questions and she expects those to increase.

“We sent out the warning to get out ahead of the problem,” she said.
