LANSING, Mich. (WILX) Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is warning everyone about consumer scams during the historic cold snap.

She says people should be wary of anyone calling offering propane or gas at a higher than usual cost, utility scams where they ask you to pay up or be cut off on the phone, insurance scams, and anyone offering unnecessary services.

Dana Nessel, Michigan Attorney General, said, "The office of the Michigan Attorney General is committed to protecting consumers during this difficult period and we will continue to fight against unwarranted price increases or other business practices that violate the law."

Attorney General Nessel said, if you think you might be a victim of a scam, call her office's Consumer Protections Divisions or file a complaint online.
