Avoid scams on storm assistance, recovery

Do not trust anyone who offers financial help and then asks for money or personal information. The Department of Homeland Security, FEMA, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention staff never charge for disaster assistance.

  • The best information on legitimate sources of help in your area will come from local officials.
  • Do not disclose information to any unsolicited telephone calls and emails.
  • Federal and local disaster workers do not solicit or accept money.
  • Beware of visits, calls, or emails from people claiming to be from FEMA asking for your Social Security number, bank account, or other sensitive information. Giving out this type of information can lead to identify theft.

FEMA offers advice to avoid scams after natural disasters:
