Protect yourself from scams, Todd sheriff advises

LONG PRAIRIE — The Todd County Sheriff’s Office has received several reports recently about companies soliciting work at residences around the county. 

These reports consist of the homeowner being quoted one price for the work, but being charged a considerably larger amount once the work is completed. The sheriff’s office reminds homeowners that the best way to protect yourself from this type of activity is to always get any estimates for work in writing from the contractor. 

A legitimate contractor will not hesitate to give a prospective client a written estimate with an accurate description of the work to be performed. Anyone with concerns about this type of activity is encouraged to contact the Todd County Sheriff’s Office.
