FRAUD ALERT Continues:
Harvey, Irma, and Maria Disaster Scams
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and HUD Office of Inspector General (OIG) warns everyone affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria to be alert for fraud schemes that commonly occur following a disaster. You need to protect yourself from fraudsters who will take advantage of the confusing nature of information after a major disaster.
Watch out for scam housing inspectors. Fraudsters may impersonate inspectors from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) or the Small Business Administration. These imposters may ask for banking information, ask for money for fees, or attempt to steer you to a certain repair firm. Others may seek personal information they will use to steal your identity.

Fair Housing Discrimination
Hotline Scam

It has come to our attention that the Housing Discrimination Hotline has been getting calls from the public about a group using a scam that shows them calling from 1-800-669-9777 (the Discrimination Hotline). HUD has received over 30 calls from the public at this time. One scam tells the person to send $300 to them and that HUD will send them back $9000.  If you receive a phone call related to this from the public, or if you receive such a message on the answering machine, you have been contacted fraudulently. Please report this to the FCC https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/spoofing-and-caller-id
