It is summer time and along with good weather and vacations, it is the season for “summer scams”. Some of the more common involve phony contractors offering to do unsolicited work for a low price. Commons scams include driveway paving, and roofing.  Before you agree to have someone do work for you, ask to see their  contractors license. Get several quotes for the same job from reputable contractors.

Another common scam is for individuals to gain entrance into your house through trick. They may ask to use the phone, or get a drink of water. while you are distracted they, or an accomplice, quickly look for any valuables  left out in the open. Often times  people don’t realize they have been robbed unti it is too late.
