In case 2020 hasn’t been a weird enough year, add in a record-breaking storm season to the mix and you’ve got the full package. Storms and other natural disasters bring about enough physical damage on their own, but another negative impact has also been on the rise – scams.
Unfortunately, in the event of a natural disaster, people tend to come out of the woodwork fraudulently posing as official disaster aid workers, building contractors, or providing fake offers for local or federal aid. As a smart consumer and/or business, you need to learn how to protect yourself from being taken advantage of. Thankfully, Enformion can help arm you with that protection.
FEMA advises survivors to be aware of fraud and scams and encourages them to report any suspicious activity or potential fraud from scam artists, identity thieves, and other criminals.
