Hurricane scams

November 1, 2012

S. C. Attorney General Alan Wilson warns South Carolinians to beware of opportunities in investment schemes in the wake of the destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy. Wilson says cold-calling telephone salespersons, advertisements, and Internet postings that promote investment pools or bonds to help storm victims, or promote water-removal or purification technologies, electricity-generating devices and distressed real estate remediation programs should be a red flag to investors. He also warned that fake victims may try to use social media to dupe well-intentioned donors.
