MADISON – Northeast Nebraska officials are warning residents to be on the lookout for home improvement scams.
Madison County Sheriff Vern Hjorth said in a news release that scammers will pose as contractors and offer a number of jobs for reduced rates.
Sheriff Hjorth says elderly residents are often the targets of these scammers.
He says homeowners can protect themselves by getting more than one estimate for contract work.
He adds that anyone who thinks they’ve been the victim of a scam should contact law enforcement.
