It is a sad fact that natural disasters bring out the con-artists and scammers. Why? Because they prey on people’s feelings and wanting to help those in need.
The National Center for Disaster Fraud established a hotline in January where you can report suspected fraud. The number is (866) 720-5721, or you can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
