Scammers will do just about anything to get your money. And they’re not above preying on individuals who’ve survived flooding spawned by Hurricane Ida’s storm surge. It’s common to see transient contractors setting up temporary shop in these situations.
Property owners are warned to beware of transient contractors who typically set up shop in the wake of disasters such as a hurricane. Never pay a contractor any amount of money in advance.
A great way to verify whether a contractor is legit is to visit the Better Business Bureau website and look them up. If you’re still unsure, you can call the BBB serving Mississippi at 601-398-1700.
