Video: Insurance Agents Warn Storm Victims of Possible Scams

MISSISSIPPI (WCBI) — As cleanup continues, insurance agents warn storm victims about con artists.

Insurance agents have been busy handing claims from homeowners in our viewing area where the tornadoes touched down Monday.

There are a number of contractors , roofing companies, repair services and debris removal companies in the affected areas.

Agents with Alfa Insurance have set up a mobile post in Tupelo and they are also busy in the Louisville area.

They say any contractor should be carefully checked out, especially those from out of state.

“If it’s an out of state contractor I would check references and make sure that they have their license with them, most of in state contractors I think we have good contractors here in Tupelo they would be familiar with and if they need to call someone I would just check on them,” Greg Ott with Alfa Insurance said.
