Telephone scam targeting flood victims
BATON ROUGE- Gov. John Bel Edwards Office of Community Development is warning residents about scam telephone calls that are targeting flood-impacted families.
A release from Edwards' office said, the scam calls are asking people to provide private information such as bank account numbers or make a financial deposit to complete their applications for assistance.
If program applicants have doubts about the authenticity of a phone call or email, they should contact the Restore Louisiana Homeowner Assistance Program at 866-735-2001 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Restore Louisiana staff will confirm who they are by referring to the applicant's survey account number. Applicants are encouraged to compare this number to their own survey account number before giving out any personal information.
