Police Warn Flint Residents of Scam Amid Water Emergency
It's sickening to think that anyone would take advantage of the water emergency that is poisoning Flint residents, but sadly, this is the world we live in. Officials from the city of Flint alongside the National Guard are going door-to-door handing out bottled water and water filters to residents completely free of charge.
However, police are getting reports of people showing up at their doorstep selling water filters. Obviously, police are urging people not to pay for these filters that are being provided free of charge at Flint fire halls, and again are being delivered door to door.
If someone tries to sell you a water filter, police ask that you contact them immediately.
