FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — State Auditor Adam Edelen has alerted law enforcement authorizes 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 said that isn't true, and he's concerned it could be part of a scam.

Edelen said no collections are being sought. He said it's unclear how many retirees have received the letter.
