Scams Targetting Seniors: Home Reno Scam (Canada)

Home reno scam targets seniors
News
Dec 19, 2008

Hamilton Police are warning the public about an increase in the number of reported incidents of home renovation and roofing scams in the area.

Over the past two years, the Service Crimes Against Seniors Unit and the Seniors Support Officers have been experiencing a higher than normal volume of home renovation and roofing scams reports.

Consumers need to do some research before signing a contract, police say, including consulting with trusted individuals such as family or neighbours who have had work done at their homes. They also urge residents to learn what makes a contract legal and to know their rights. Information relating to these types of scams can be obtained at www.hamiltonpolice.on.ca or by contacting the Better Business Bureau, 905-526-1111 or www.bbbhamilton.ca .
