News Release
FRANKFORT, Ky. -- Survivors of the Feb. 29 and March 2, 2012 tornadoes, straight line winds and flooding and storms in Kentucky should be on the alert for scam artists who may approach you in person, by telephone or via the Internet. Be alert when your doorbell rings. People going door-to-door to damaged homes or telephoning disaster survivors and claiming to be building contractors could be frauds. If visitors or callers solicit personal information such as Social Security or bank account numbers, or for money, they are not legitimate.
