Lincoln Police Warn of Fake Auction Signs Across the City

LINCOLN, Nebraska (Nebraska) – The Lincoln Police Department is warning the public about fake auction signs that have begun to appear throughout the city.

Signs in the courtyard advertise a public auction at the Marriot Hotel on Saturday. The sign states that government assets have been confiscated and lists high-value items such as jewelry, cars and branded goods.

The Marriott hotel has been contacted and confirmed that they are not running any auctions.

The sign encourages people to call the phone number. LPD Captain Todd Kocian said the caller would likely be asked for a credit card number to buy a ticket for an auction that doesn’t actually exist.

LPD reported that similar fake signs appeared in other cities as well.
