State Auditor Adam Edelen has alerted law enforcement to a fraudulent letter that has been sent to retirees in Kentucky. The letter claims the auditor's office has discovered that some 26,000 people were overpaid and that a field agent would contact them for repayment. Edelen says that isn't true, and he's concerned it could be part of a scam. Edelen says no collections are being sought. He said it's unclear how many retirees have received the letter.
