CLEARWATER, FL, October 06, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- 49th Street Bail Bonds launches their online guide informing consumers on how to avoid being scammed after a major storm. Lori Ponder, owner of 49th Street Bail Bonds, states, "After enduring a hurricane, loss of air conditioning, loss of food, damaged property, and sleepless nights, the last thing that Florida residents need is a scam artist trying to take advantage of them. Unfortunately, natural disasters often bring out these scam artists. Our online guide offers examples of scams along with tips on how to prevent being a victim of a scam artist so that people can protect themselves."
The online guide can be accessed at http://49thstreetbailbonds.com/hurricane-scammers/
This guide provides examples of scams along with helpful tips to prevent being scammed. Examples in the online guide include:
- Do not hire a person that knocks at the door and claims to be a contractor. Only hire a person that is licensed, insured, and bonded.
- Do not pay for repairs upfront.
- Beware robocalls making claims such as insurance coverage has laxed and needs to be paid now
- Make sure a charity is legitimate before donating money to it. Many scam artists establish fake pages or charities in order to make money
- If there was damage to home or property, then contact the insurance company first
- Document all damage with photos, videos, written descriptions (whatever it takes)
- Ask for references and check with the Better Business Bureau before hiring anyone
