The Michigan State Police Emergency Management & Homeland Security Division warns of individuals posing as Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) representatives going door-to-door. Federal officials are not going door to door in the counties affected by the flooding at this time.
If there is any doubt, do not give out any information, and report people claiming to be government workers to local authorities. To safeguard against disaster-related fraud, FEMA officials recommend the following precautions:
Suspicious activity should be reported to local authorities or to the FEMA Waste, Fraud, and Abuse Hotline at 800-323-8603 or TTY 844-889-4357 or e-mail FEMA-OCSO-Tipline@fema.dhs.gov.

The public is encouraged to monitor local media for up-to-date disaster information.
