via Attorney General Beshear focused on protecting Kentuckians against price gouging

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) – Now that a state of emergency has been declared in Kentucky, Attorney General Andy Beshear is asking Kentuckians to report price gouging to his office.

“My office is accepting price gouging reports, and we are ready to investigate and even prosecute predatory pricing,” said Beshear, in a release from his office.

“Now that a state of emergency has been declared and price gouging laws are in full effect, we will be on the lookout for any instances of price gouging including, generators, building supplies, chainsaws, hotel rooms and other necessary goods and services at an exorbitant price in a time of disaster.”

Common schemes include phony contractors seeking quick payment for repair services they promise and never provide, or a bogus loan company employee who offers to provide financing for expensive repairs.
