Be cautious of grant program scammers

LOUISIANA (KSLA) - Louisiana's Attorney General has a warning for us all about the latest round of scams.

Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain says a $44 million grant program designed to help farmers is bringing con artists out of the woodwork.

Strain says this latest crop of scam artists uses official looking seals and stationery on their mailings.

Strain says if the offer for help asks you for money, you should ask lots of questions before you pay for anything.
