¿Te ha afectado un desastre natural reciente y has recibido una llamada de alguien que te pide que verifiques tu inscripción en FEMA aun cuando no presentaste ninguna solicitud? ¿O has tratado de reclamar tus beneficios o asistencia ante FEMA pero te dijeron que ya habías presentado la solicitud?

Después de recibir múltiples quejas de gente que reside en estas áreas afectadas, la FTC quiere que te enteres de que anda circulando una estafa que involucra a impostores de FEMA y el robo de identidad. La gente está reportando lo siguiente:

  • Alguien que se hace pasar por un representante de FEMA está llamando a la gente para pedirle su información personal.
  • Se le ha robado la identidad a la gente después de un desastre natural.
  • Alguien ha solicitado beneficios de FEMA usando el nombre de otra gente.

FEMA tiene recomendaciones para ayudarte a protegerte de un fraude relacionado con un desastre. Lo cual incluye lo que tienes que hacer si tratas de inscribirte en línea para recibir asistencia de FEMA pero obtienes un error de verificación, y lo que tienes que hacer si te llama alguien para pedirte que verifiques tu inscripción en FEMA aunque no hayas presentado una solicitud. También puedes consultar la información de la FTC sobre las estafas de impostores, incluyendo esa gente que se hace pasar por representantes del gobierno.

¿Ya te han robado tu identidad? Visita RobodeIdentidad.gov para recibir un plan de acción personal con detalles paso a paso. Y si detectaste un -fraude relacionado con un desastre natural, por favor cuéntanoslo en ftc.gov/queja.

I had my SS card stolen by a cable service tech who came into my home to address cable issues. I filed a police report as well as reported the Techs name to the Cable Company. Because I didn't have visual proof of him taking my personal items from my home the police closed case and Cable company did nothing but say I'm sorry. The tech was actually employed by cable company (Comcast) not a sub contractor and they still didn't care. I have done everything possible to protect my info but even having a 7 year Fraud alert placed with all credit Bureaus and Bank, and I am constantly having to change bank cards and security measures and if i use any of my personal cards to order ANYTHING ONLINE. Amazon was big one along with a few others. As soon as I tried to order from well known companies I get charges on my card I used within a day or 2. All of this is relevant to FEMA because I did apply but did not get any assistance. I was told to apply for Diaster loans. How am I supposed to know if someone else may have already used my information and received assistance from FEMA?

I do not know if this is helpful; however I noticed a match of a person, opening confusing to fraudulent enthusiasm. I enter Scam; in the GIF field, on a Facebook post. I saw yesterdays article, regarding Love scams. I thought of a friend; who's mother had recently shared with me, her sons situation, with a Facebook Love. Additionally; she shared that he sent money to this opposed Love, money through Western Union if my memory serves me? It has been awhile, thus the article. I am going to try to add the GIF, the enthusiastic fraud and robbery. Many problems are arising from these verification issues. No one can make an honest living these days. If I am not successful with the GIF copy paste, seek the head shot I speak of on any GIF on Facebook?

Dallas County, Texas, had been designated “Public Assistance” and I have been notified that this has been noted on my credit status by the credit bureaus. According to the investigative reporter on our local news, people like me, with this designation are being denied credit. I have never applied for public assistance and otherwise have excellent credit rating.

‭+1 (504) 355-2116‬ Called me today and said they where irs and I had 24 hours before they would arrest me if I did not call. So I reported them as I did last month to the Atlanta area code irs scam. After that though I thought why not call them. They already have this number and I got time to kill. I called them not once, not twice, but 40 times! At first they answered this is irs bla bla bla. But after I went through the 4 callers they all knew me and started calling me names and telling me not to call them? I thought I had to or I am getting arrested. The call you gave me never said I needed to pay but just call. So I did and they got mad and just started hanging up on me? I got nasty with them some calls, did a few prank calls, went into calling each other names. It was fun. I will give them a few calls later just for fun. Suggest people really wake up if these type of scams get you but have fun with them. If an officer shows up then be worried. Besides you should know if you are in trouble with the irs already unless someone used your identity.

me too. Note to scammers: police officers are not referred to as "cops" by the IRS.
