SPRINGFIELD, Mo.– Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt’s office said Tuesday it plans to work with people impacted by recent flooding across the state.

To help flood victims resist falling into a potential scam, the AG’s office is setting up a multi-agency resource center (MARC) in one of six Missouri towns for the next six days.

The center are designed to point these victims in the direction of legitimate relief organizations.

“Stop by any of the MARC locations listed below to speak with representatives from the Attorney General’s Office on how to best select a reputable contractor, how to avoid falling victim to identity theft, how to report price gouging and fraud, and more,” Schmitt added.
