LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- A Consumer Alert this morning for you. The damage caused by natural disasters like floods and tornadoes can often bring out the best in people as strangers reach out to help others in need.
Unfortunately, they also bring out those who scam others with home repairs and clean-up efforts. Mike Rohrer with the Better Business Bureau joins us with a few post-disaster red flags.
Here are tips for avoiding getting scammed:
1. Check with your insurance company
2. Avoid acting in haste.
3. Take time to shop around for contractors
4. Be wary of door-to-door workers
5. Prepare a written agreement with anyone you hire.
