ALERT: ‘MEMA is not giving out $800 vouchers’
JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency wants to warn you about a scam.
“If you get a text message claiming that FEMA is giving out $800 vouchers, that is FALSE,” MEMA tweeted.
Scammers are preying on innocent Mississippians who need help after last week’s storms, the agency says.
The state is not under a major disaster declaration and MEMA said they will notify everyone if federal assistance is available.
