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.
