From Nassau County Emergency Management:
NCEM has been notified that several residents have received fraudulent correspondence purporting to be from FEMA. These letters have been regarding applications... for disaster benefits and may be directed to any resident, whether they have registered for federal assistance or not.
Federal and state workers do not ask for or accept money. FEMA staff will never charge applicants for disaster assistance, home inspections, or help filling out applications. FEMA does not require any resident to provide credit or debit card information and does not issue benefits on "Green Dot Cards."
Do not fall for false promises to speed up the insurance, disaster assistance, or building permit process. There are no shortcuts.
If you suspect fraud, please contact the FEMA Disaster Fraud Hotline at 866-720-5721, email them at firstname.lastname@example.org, or report it to the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov
In Florida, disaster-related fraud can be reported to 1-855-352-7233.
You may also contact the Nassau County Sheriff's Office at 904-548-4009 or 855-725-2630 to report suspected fraud or criminal activity.
