Wheaton officials warn residents to beware of contractor fraud
WHEATON – After a disaster, professionals often go door to door to offer their services in neighborhoods that have sustained damage. While many of these business people are reputable, some are not.
For the many homeowners who have become victims of contractor fraud, it has either forced delays in rebuilding or has completely halted the rebuilding process after a disaster.
Contractor fraud was a major obstacle facing many Louisiana homeowners as they strove to rebuild after hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005. About 9,000 households were affected by contractor fraud over three years after those disasters hit.
