The Arizona attorney general is warning consumers about deceptive flyers advertising deals on solar panels.

The flyers have the appearance of coming from a government agency. They even display a modified version of the Maricopa County seal and advertise solar energy systems for homes through state and federal programs. But when consumers call the number they instead get a sales pitch from a private company.

Similar flyers have appeared around Las Vegas.

The Arizona Attorney General’s Office warns the so-called “Maricopa County Solar Initiative” isn’t registered to do business in the state and that consumers should submit a complaint if they believe they are victims of fraud.
