While most people are offering sympathy, understanding and support for the citizens of Petange and Bascharage, other individuals are attempting to profit off the natural disaster.

The communes of Petange and Bascharage warned inhabitants of fraudulent individuals with fake companies offering home roofing repairs.

For this they would charge a deposit. Once the deposit had been paid the apparent craftsmen would make a run for it. Citizens are warned to only employ serious, well-known contractors.
