Con artists may take different forms but they still roam our neighborhoods. WBRZ in Louisiana recently reported that door-to-door scams are on the rise this summer. One of the scams is someone claiming to be a handyman offering their services and demanding cash up front, and then the work is never completed.
Another scam includes a couple claiming to be with their residential security services company. The couple offers to conduct a free assessment but once inside the house, one of them distracts the resident while the other loots the home.
One of the best ways to avoid being scammed is to never let the person inside your home. These kinds of criminals often prey on the vulnerable, such as children or senior citizens.
