After a natural disaster, such as the storms and tornadoes that hit Jefferson City in 2019, community members will come together to help their neighbors with clean-up, re-building, and financial and emotional support. Unfortunately, some people try to take advantage of consumers and homeowners who are anxious to repair their damaged homes.
MMLS helps mid-Missouri consumers and homeowners affected by the recent storms and tornadoes to protect themselves from scams perpetrated by storm-chasers. If you been a victim of a scam, please call MMLS at 573.442-0116.
