Everyday in East Texas, there are numerous scamming attempts. Just a daily look at area police reports will bear that out. There always seems to be someone reporting that their financial information was compromised or that someone tried to get secure information through a phone call.
Surely karma will take care of these folks.
There are reports (and maybe you’ve seen the posts) that people on Facebook and other social media sites are claiming to be storm victims when they’re not. Those folks are asking for money right along with legitimate hurricane relief efforts, generating sympathy, and in some cases making a buck.
