I saw this article today “10 Ways to Avoid Contractor Scams” for people that need to have work done on their homes after Irene.
When we had Hurricanes Francis & Jean the scammers came out of the woodwork. So many families and individuals in our area were taken for thousands and thousands of dollars. This article gives tips on how to protect yourself when needing work done on your home.
