BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The Butte County District Attorney is reminding everyone to be especially alert in the wake of the Camp Fire. 

Along with rental scams on Craigslist, District Attorney Mike Ramsey is also investigating unlicensed or fraudulent contractors, and fake disaster officials offering services to those impacted by the fire. 

"The challenge is to never give out your personal information unless you know exactly there's a real need or a site you know is legitimate," Ramsey said. 

The U.S. Attorney's Office is also investigating people who falsely claim to be Camp Fire victims. You can report fraud at the District Attorney's fraud hotline
