BBB Warns: After Nicole In Florida, Watch Out For Scams

Better Business Bureau warns consumers that in the aftermath of Hurricane Nicole, watch out for storm chasers and/or impostors looking to take advantage of people.

Better Business Bureau warns consumers that in the aftermath of Hurricane Nicole, watch out for storm chasers and/or impostors looking to take advantage of people.

Scammers use phone, text, email, mail and will even go door-to-door targeting Floridians affected by the storm. 

No government agencies will call unsolicited or text you asking for financial account information and there will never be a fee required to apply for aid thru government disaster assistance agencies. 

If a government agency contacts you and ask for money or your personal information, hang up and report it to BBB Scam Tracker, it’s an Imposter.

Hurricane victims should never feel pressured to make a hasty decision or choose an unknown contractor. Make temporary repairs if necessary so you can take the time to choose a trustworthy contractor.

BBB’s Florida Hurricane Guide is a one-stop resource page to provide Hurricane help for Floridians.  Within this hurricane guide, you will find guidance on disaster preparedness, recovery and repair, and how to avoid scams post-hurricane. Visit: bbb.org/hurricane to learn more.
