News Release
SALEM -- Victims of Tropical Depression Jeanne are in danger of being victimized again, this time by scam artists, disaster officials say. No one will ask for a flood victim’s personal information, including Social Security numbers, until the victim registers with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, said Michael M. Cline, the state coordinating officer for the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM). "Individuals must begin the aid process themselves by registering with FEMA,” said Cline. “That is the only way to apply for federal or state assistance.”
