Residents warned of scams

San Diego County Dist. Atty. Bonnie Dumanis and San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders warned residents of possible scams and price gouging.

"There are people out there preying on San Diegans," Sanders said.

At his Saturday morning news conference at the San Diego Zoo, Sanders said an out-of-town company snapped up 50 apartments in the Rancho Bernardo area and tripled the rent. A woman who had evacuated called the mayor's office, and after receiving pressure from city officials, the company backed off and the apartments were offered at the pre-fire rent.
