It has to do with a 2011 settlement between the USDA and African American farmers.
Yesterday a group called the Black Farmers and Agriculturalists Association or BFAA was in Dothan.
They said they were helping black farmers whose families had been discriminated against , get financial justice.
The settlement they were talking about has been closed for more than a year.
Back in 2011, the USDA settled a claim by African American farmers concerning discrimination between 1981 and 1996.
People could apply to be part of that settlement through May of 2012.
AG strange is urging people to be cautious of groups that ask for money and/or personal information.
In a statement released today, Strange says he's concerned about meetings telling black farmers, that for a fee, someone can help them file claims and participate in a federal discrimination lawsuit.
He goes on to say "This is simply untrue ... And farmers should not pay any money or provide personal information."
Our searches turned up two websites for organizations by this name.
My BFAA.org is the site for the group who was in town yesterday.
There's also a BFAA-US.org.
We attempted to contact both of those organizations.
Our phone calls were not returned.
