Fraudsters Capitalize on Natural Disasters 

The FBI reminds the public there is a potential for fraud in the aftermath of the wildfires in Northern California. The FBI has received indications that fraudsters are using e-mail and social-networking sites, including job search engines, to facilitate fraudulent activities. 

Disasters such as the wildfires in Northern California prompt fraudsters to solicit contributions purportedly for a charitable organization or a good cause. Fraudsters may also attempt to capitalize on the misfortune of victims by advertising false temporary housing ads which victims send money to the subject in order to have property keys mailed to them.

Read FBI guidelines to help protect you from becoming a victim of fraud.
