My Take - Rebuild

In the Tennessee Valley we are all too familiar with  picking up the pieces from devastating storms.  As we move forward on recovery and rebuilding, it's important to be on the lookout for potential scammers in the wake of the storm.  Attorney General Luther Strange is urging you to call his office if you  believe any store or service is price-gouging for fuel, supplies or services. The number to call is 1-800-392-5658. You can also file a complaint online at state.al.us He is also warning about the possibility of fly-by-night contractors coming in to promise cheap repairs. They take money in exchange for shoddy work or no work at all. Remember to ask contractors for proof they're licensed. Get phone numbers, names and written estimates before committing to anything and check them out with services such as the Better Business Bureau. I'm Vanessa Oubre That's "My Take"  What's Yours?
