A scam alert has been released by the Henry County Chamber of Commerce. The local Red Cross has been informed that businesses may encounter subjects trying to obtain gift cards by claiming they were victims of a fire. Red Cross executive director Jeanie Detmer reports this is not Red Cross procedure, and is a scam. Anyone affected by a disaster would be equipped with a client assistance card that is issued directly from the Red Cross. If you see suspicious activity like this, contact your local law enforcement agency.
