In a scene that’s becoming increasingly common after a catastrophe, unscrupulous “storm chasers” are targeting tornado victims, Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr and Insurance Commissioner John King said in a recent statement.

“Unfortunately, bad actors know to target victims at their most vulnerable, such as after a storm-related loss,” Commissioner King said. “Beware of anyone who shows up at your home or place of business immediately after a storm. Your first call after a disaster should be to your insurance company to file a claim. Whether it’s a contractor or public adjuster, do your research and verify credentials before signing any contracts or agreeing to any services.”
