Immediately after the storm and in the weeks and months after, con artists have used the tragedy for their own gain.

Right now the attorney general's office has 296 active files on home repair fraud. They say they have been instrumental in the arrests of 10 people. Two have been convicted. And there are arrest warrants outstanding for six people.
