Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt has issued an insurance scam warning following recent ongoing flooding in the state and the tornado in Jefferson City last week.

Schmitt used his insurance scam warning to express his concern regarding price gauging and scammers on the heels of natural disasters in Missouri. He warned people across the state to be wary of construction fraud, price gauging, and fake charity donation requests. He stated that these types of activities are, unfortunately, quite common after natural disasters.

The attorney general also recommended that anyone who suspects that they have witnessed or experienced fraud should report it to the Consumer Protection Hotline (800-392-8222) or to the Attorney General’s Office website.
