LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — The Nebraska Attorney General’s Office issued a scam warning Tuesday.

The scam consists of a text message claiming drivers owe money for Nebraska tolls and asking them to click on a link to pay.

But there are no toll roads in Nebraska, according to the state Department of Transportation. And there is only one toll bridge, Plattsmouth.

If you receive this message, do not click the link. Then block the number and delete the text.

To report a scam, call the Attorney General’s Office Consumer Response Team at 402-471-2682 or visit
