Beware of scams in aftermath of storms that blew through Douglas County
The Alexandria Building Department sent out a warning about storm chaser scams.
ALEXANDRIA — As residents begin the task of restoring their properties after the storm on Thursday night, May 12, the Alexandria Building Department sent out a warning about storm chaser scams.
"Storm chasers follow storms and come in from all over," said Lynn Timm, Alexandria building official. "Sometimes they are reputable, and other times they are not. Please do your due diligence when hiring a contractor to do your work. Ask them for verification of their Minnesota Residential Building Contractor license. If they are unable to provide that, walk away. Better yet, we have a lot of great local building contractors who are here for the long run; give them a call. "
Those with any questions may call the building department at 320-763-6678.
