County Officials are asking the public to beware of people impersonating officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA.
The majority of complaints coming in to FEMA involve bogus charities, FEMA impersonators, fake websites masquerading as FEMA, electricity disconnection threats and contractor fraud.
