The Better Business Bureau is warning the public to be wary of “disaster fraud.” Bogus charities may solicit donations for flood relief and door-to-door salespeople may offer fake deals on home repair. Make sure you do your research and only donate to reputable charities. The same advice should be heeded for a contractor you may hire to make repairs to your home or business.
