Scamming Tornado Victims


Central Illinois- People are prying on those desperately needing a helping hand right now.

The Illinois Emergency Management Agency is warning tornado victims to look out for scams.

IEMA officials have reported a caller claiming to be with FEMA and she was seeking personal information.

FEMA employees do not call and request personal information over the phone. They also carry identification. Ask to see their ID if you have concerns.

Other scams include fraudulent housing inspectors, building contractors and donation solicitors.
