As New Mexico flood victims begin to repair and rebuild their homes and businesses, they can avoid scams by vetting contractors and charities with these resources:
-Better Business Bureau New Mexico
-Find out if charity or fundraiser is registered in your state
-Look up/verify a contractor license in New Mexico
New Mexicans can report suspected scams to the AG's office via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by filing a complaint report. Consumer Complaint forms are available at http://www.nmag.gov/consumer/file-a-complaint.
