MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

It's hard to believe in a time like this when our state is in the process of rebuilding and recovering there are those that will see this as an opportunity to take advantage of the situation and the suffering people involved. That is disgusting and will not be tolerated.

Our Attorney General, Luther Strange has pledged that his office will be vigilant in protecting our citizens from those who might exploit this tragedy for illegal profit. Such illegal acts would involve looting, price gouging and home repair fraud. 

Criminals – you are now on notice - if you are caught doing any of these illegal acts- you will be punished sternly and to the fullest extent of the law. 

We encourage everyone to report any situations involving looting, alleged fraud or illegal price gouging to your local authorities and the Attorney General's Office of Consumer Protection.

So let it be known - Alabama is state built on FAITH, FAMILY and FRIENDS - we look out for each other, we know right from wrong and will be on the lookout for those wishing to prey on our friends and neighbors devastated by the storm. 

We welcome your feedback.
