Midland officials are warning of a FEMA scam that has popped up following the flood.

Emergency Management Coordinator Jenifier Boyer said that people posing as FEMA representatives have been going door-to-door handing out SERVPRO cards and asking for money.

Boyer said that FEMA representatives are not in the Midland community yet, and they will never ask for money.

She stresses not to release any personal information to these people, and announcements will be made if and when FEMA representatives come to Midland.

SERVPRO is in the area and is reaching out to residents to see if they are interested in their services, Midland County said.

SERVPRO employees drive green vehicles that are marked with the company's name. The employees also have identification and business cards.

They will not represent themselves as being from FEMA, Midland County said.

If you are interested in their services or need to verify an employee you can call 877-818-7127.
