Disaster Unemployment Assistance

Storm Related Scam Alert

After Hurricane Matthew swept up the east coast leaving damage in its wake, many of those affected are in need of assistance. Unfortunately, past natural disasters have shown us that scammers may pose as utility workers, insurance adjusters, or even FEMA officials.


Don't Fall For Storm Repair Scams

Hurricane Matthew flooded homes and businesses, ripped off roofs and sent tree through walls and across driveways. Unfortunately, home repair scammers are trying to profit off the damage.
One group approached a senior in Raleigh and tried to pressure him to pay more than $1,500 upfront to remove downed trees. Fortunately his family intervened to stop the scam and report it to our office and local law enforcement.
