Valley storm victims cautioned about contractor scams

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

As people living in Mahoning and Mercer counties clean up tornado and storm damage, the Better Business Bureau is reminding homeowners about potential contractor scams.

Here are some tips:

  • Don't Sign anything you don't understand
  • Be suspicious of any contractor that contacts you out of the blue
  • Beware of contractors going door to door.
  • Get a copy of any contract you sign.
  • Don't be in a hurry.

If there is  extensive damage in your neighborhood, it will take some time for reputable contractors to get back to you. Scammers prey on people frustrated with not getting help quickly enough.
