BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey and U.S. Attorney held a press conference Wednesday to warn the public about potential fraud cases in the wake of the Camp Fire.

Ramsey confirmed several rental scams and warned people about hiring unlicensed contractors. U.S. Attorney Mcgregor Scott said that fraud investigations are moving forward. 

"I'm hopeful that we'll be able to that relatively soon," Scott said. "We've got open, active investigations going on right now and I was just told of one here earlier today that seemed to me to be fairly clear-cut, and we should be able to move on that shortly."
