MADISON - The Madison County Sheriff’s Office is warning people to watch out for home improvement scams.
According to Sheriff Vern Hjorth many scammers will pose as contractors to solicit work for asphalt, cement, tree trimming, roofing, house painting and siding jobs, often at reduced rates.
Oftentimes, the material and work are poor quality. The elderly are often targets for these types of scams.
If you believe you have been the target of a fraudulent contractor or other type of scam you should contact local law enforcement and report the activity immediately.
