Attorney General Scott Pruitt issued a warning Monday for Oklahomans affected by the recent wildfires. “We know from past experience that major property damage after a disaster attracts criminals looking for ways to take advantage,” Pruitt said. “We want everyone to be aware of the possible schemes and scams.” The Attorney General’s Public Protection Unit monitors and investigates home repair and charity fraud after natural disasters. They pay special attention to repair workers who travel from city to city following disasters.
