It has come to our attention that a group of individuals are using the Liberty Mutual name in violation of Federal Trademark laws and may be part of an advance fee scam. These individuals falsely claim to be part of the Liberty Mutual Group in Boston, but they are in no way associated or affiliated with the Liberty Mutual Group. These individuals are contacting potential victims stating that a sweepstakes has been won and has not been collected and in order to collect the prize the victim must pay a fee.
The scammers are using these following names and phone numbers:
Daniel Hoffman (617-275-4941)
Wayne Russell (202-509-0673)
These are NOT Liberty Mutual Group employees and are NOT Liberty Mutual phone numbers.
Liberty Mutual does not sponsor, promote or engage in international lotteries or sweepstakes where a fee must be paid. If you receive a phone call regarding this type of scam, we would recommend that you DO NOT provide any personal information to the caller and DO NOT send any money. To report this type of fraudulent activity to Liberty Mutual you can email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
