The agency warns victims of Hurricane Ida to not trust anyone who offers financial help. Check everyone out thoroughly before giving anyone personal information or money for services of any type.

Remember, if someone calls you or shows up at your door asking for money and claiming to be from FEMA, the Department of Homeland Security, Health and Human Services or any other government agency...don't give them a dime. All of those government services are free and they would never call or go door-to-door asking for money.
