Red Cross Scam Warning

Chicot Memorial

(Bolivar County, MS) — Due to recent flooding in the area, the American Red Cross is now in Bolivar County ready to assist flood victims. However, it has been brought to their attention that people are impersonating Red Cross disaster case workers and soliciting funds from flood victims. There are ways to tell if someone is a Red Cross volunteer. They all have service vests that say “disaster response”, they have name badges with their pictures, full names and ID numbers. They do not solicit funds door to door. For those needing assistance, call 1-800-REDCROSS or visit
