Home Improvement Scammers Take
Money, Don’t Complete Work
Use caution when hiring a home improvement contractor. Scams abound, especially following
a major storm, flood, or other weather event when many homeowners are trying to repair
their houses. But contractor scams can happen any time, so be wary of high-pressure sales
tactics, upfront fees, and fly-by-night businesses. Con artists will take homeowners’ money
and deliver slipshod work… or no work at all.
How the Scam Works:
Home improvement scams can start with a knock on the door, a flyer, or an ad.
• Watch out for “red flags.” Say no to cash-only deals, high-pressure sales tactics, high upfront
payments, handshake deals without a contract, and on-site inspections. Not all “storm chasers” are con
artists, but enough are that you should be cautious any time a home contractor contacts you
first…especially after a natural disaster.
• Ask for references and check them out. Bad contractors will be reluctant to share this information and
scammers won’t wait for you to do your homework.
