After a natural disaster. Everyone is vulnerable. Especially economic disadvantaged areas, where lumber and building materials flow slowly into storm ravaged areas.
The big players get what they want to get rebuilt quickly. More often than not the less financially powerful get the short end of the stick, left wondering what to do during the chaos of reconstruction.
Fraud, kick backs and market manipulation occur in every economic environment in the world. When lives are on the line after natural disasters, that manipulation can manifest itself into a ruthless profit making environment where the rich and powerful block and impede supply lines to regular folks to enrich themselves through acts of fraud, long after the powerful have rebuilt. Many times, the common folks don’t know the real reasons why they can’t acquire needed materials and supplies.
Deceptive trade practices during reconstruction of storm destroyed areas leave common folks and families as victims of ruthless market manipulation. Many times, these activities are illegal. Unfortunately, few can stand up to fight against this evil. At my firm, we do.
