Plenty of FEMA Fraud Prosecutions in Southern Mississippi

Speaking of FEMA fraud, the Associated Press reports that
The Bush administration now acknowledges it is trying to recover nearly $500 million from people who improperly received federal aid money intended to help victims of two deadly hurricanes, Katrina and Rita, along the Gulf Coast two years ago. It said the amount may increase further.

According to the article, that includes fraud prosecutions:
The Justice Department has prosecuted about 800 people for charges stemm[ing] from hurricane fraud, with the largest number occurring in southern Mississippi, according to its Hurricane Katrina Fraud Task Force.

So if you find yourself handling a FEMA fraud case, you might want to call the folks in the Southern District of Mississippi to get the low-down on defense strategies.
