HOME IMPROVEMENT SCAMS
Ohio attorney general warns consumers to be alert to home improvement scams as weather warms

Reported by: Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio


Ohio's attorney general is warning consumers about spring home improvement scams.

Attorney General Mike DeWine says warmer weather brings more door-to-door home improvement sales. He says consumers should be cautious and research the reputation of a business and individual contractor before agreeing to anything.

DeWine says consumers should check with his office and the Better Business Bureau for any complaints against the company. Ohioans also can search the Internet and ask contractors for references from past customers.

DeWine says consumers have a three-day right to cancel most door-to-door sales and businesses must give written notice of that right.

The Ohio Attorney General's Consumer Protection Section has filed five home improvement lawsuits so far this year against contractors believed to be violating the state's Consumer Sales Practices Act.
