The Kalamazoo, Mich., Sheriff’s Department has issued a warning to property owners that unlicensed home improvement contractors are scamming clients out of money. With spring and summer projects beginning, these contractors are targeting senior citizens and vulnerable adults through coercion. These contractors fail to show up for the job they are contracted to do or perform inferior work.
The sheriff’s department has recommended that clients check the Better Business Bureau to find trusted, licensed contractors and to obtain multiple estimates. To attract clients, display your certification from the BBB and any other certification you have to let clients know they can trust you.
