Debris and clean up removal scams after bad weather

Published on

The Millstone Times January 2019

After natural disasters, unlicensed contractors and scammers often come into the affected area promising quick repairs at discount prices. Always ask contractors for references and call previous clients. Write down the driver’s license and vehicle information (make, model, and license plate number) in case you need to report the contractor to authorities.

Be skeptical of people promising immediate clean-up and debris removal. Some may demand payment up-front for work they never do, quote outrageous prices, or simply lack the skills, licenses, and insurance to legally do the work.
