Share post:

Winchester, IN – Indiana’s Department of Homeland Security is alerting residents about potential scams targeting tornado survivors in Randolph County. Alleged contractors are reportedly presenting misleading information, falsely claiming to be hired by the Red Cross for debris removal after the tornado. These claims are false; the Red Cross does not outsource such services. Hoosiers are urged to avoid providing upfront payment or personal banking details to these individuals.

To aid those affected, donations are now being accepted at the Moose Lodge, located at 191 N. Middle School Road, Winchester. The Indiana Department of Homeland Security has released a list of items most in need, including children’s pull-ups and 9-volt batteries, which can be viewed in detail on their official website. Voluntary organizations are prepared to assist with debris removal for tornado survivors, ensuring those affected receive support without falling prey to scams. Residents are encouraged to donate or volunteer responsibly, as Indiana bands together in the wake of the disaster.
