Operation Blessing scam alert for flooding victims


Now to a scam alert from Pensacola police. They are warning all flood victims to be careful of scammers posing as contractors.

The warning comes after a homeowner along Tronjo Road was contacted by a group of people. The people claimed to be members of Operation Blessing. Operation blessing is a non-profit church group out of Virginia.

The people told the man they would remodel his home if he signed a contract. The homeowner refused and called police. Police contacted Operation Blessing. Their members say they are only allowed to do clean up work, not construction.

They also added they do not make anyone sign contracts, and they do not charge for their services.
