The Arizona Attorney General's Office has issued a warning about deceptive flyers that have shown up mentioning a "solar initiative" in Maricopa County.
The agency warns that the flyers advertise a public notice from an organization called the "Maricopa County Solar Initiative" promising a government program to pay to have solar systems installed on their homes.
However, no such program exists through Maricopa County.
Instead, the number on the flyer sends callers to a sales pitch by a private company. In addition, the flyer uses a modified version of the Maricopa County seal despite the initiative being linked to a private business and no such solar initiative is registered to do business in Arizona, the attorney general's office said in a news release.
Flyers advertising a similar deceptive program previously appeared in Clark County, Nevada earlier this year.
