Post-Storm Scam Warning



Hurricane Scam

Sheriff Blaise Smith would like to warn the public to be careful when hiring contractors to repair homes, roofs, or remove trees in this time after the storm.

There are reputable local contractors who are licensed and insured and would be perfect to hire for these needs.  Unfortunately, after storms and disasters, there are those who come into the area who are not licensed, not insured, and may actually be scamming the citizens who are in need of legitimate help to restore their homes.

Ask questions, ask to see credentials, or even get referrals from others concerning reputable contractors.
