Police in Kinston, North Carolina have warned residents that a group of men are contacting residents and telling them that they need expensive roof repairs. The men do not seem to be contractors. One resident, when contacted by the group, checked her own roof by going up a ladder. Seeing no damage, she called the police.
Police say this is the season for home repair scams. They caution homeowners to not give money up front for repairs, and always check to make certain that contractors are licensed and bonded.
