The State Bar of Texas released a video about how to respond to suspected scams or price gouging.
The Texas Attorney General’s Office is warning consumers to stay on guard. “Price gouging is illegal, and the Office of the Attorney General has the authority to prosecute any business that engages in price gouging after a disaster has been declared by the governor,” a statement on its website said.
To file a complaint, go to the consumer protection division page at texasattorneygeneral.gov.
