Beware: Storm clean-up scammers on the prowl

Local News

During this time of recovery, while Mississippi storm victims are turning to their insurance companies for help and trying to recover, Attorney General Jim Hood is reminding everyone while they’re looking for help, keep a look out for scammers pretending to be tree-cutters and home repair contractors.

Here are some tips to help make sure you don’t get scammed during storm damage clean-up.

Verify that the company you’re considering is insured. Shop around for the services and be suspicious of any price unusually high or low. Get written estimates and check around with other people that you know have gotten work done.
