Attorney General Tom Horne issued a warning Thursday that Arizonans need to be wary of consumer scams and other fraudulent schemes that may appear as criminal predators attempt to take advantage of the disastrous Wallow fire.

Fire victims should contact their insurance companies first to file a claim and receive an estimate. Horne’s office also suggests obtaining at least two estimates in writing before choosing a contractor to repair your home or remove debris. Finally, never enter into a contract while reviewing it quickly.

Consumers wishing to offer donations for disaster victims should consider donating to a nationally known charity such as the Red Cross, Horne’s office advises, and people should never feel pressured to make a donation or write a check to an individual.
