Indiana Department of Homeland Security warning about flooding scams

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Indiana Department of Homeland Security is warning about scams due to the recent storms. 

Officials say it is not unusual for crooks to show up in areas with water, roof or tree damage. The scammers tend to pose as contractors willing to help immediately, but they collect a down payment and never return. 

State leaders urge neighbors to ask contractors for proof: check licenses and make sure to get a contract detailing the scope of work and a final price.
