The Haliburton Highlands O.P.P. says it is not aware of any scams that could affect Minden Hills flood victims.

However, the police are urging caution when it comes to scammers, who may try and pose as contractors, or representatives of charitable organizations.

Constable Tim Negus says it is easy to do background checks on businesses.

Negus also suggests getting at least three quotes for home repairs.

He also says if someone is requesting donations, you should verify that the person works for a legitimate charity.
