I l acquired that our lake house state is notorious for fraudsters plus scam artists.
The amount of fraud reported each year far outpaces that of other states in the country.
My heart is broken when I hear how this state is targeted because of the significant population all of us have here of retirees plus senior citizens—who are seen as easy targets by con artists plus criminals. There are awareness campaigns plus community classes to teach seniors how to avoid scams, however it’s difficult when these people have brains that are swiftly deteriorating. The older I get, the more compassion plus empathy I get for those who are struggling with their cognitive faculties, regardless of the reason. However, sometimes there are bold scammers who will target just about anyone they come across in hopes that they will hook someone eventually. There are unlicensed Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C scammers who will go around offering free inspections so that they can claim there is something wrong with your heating plus cooling system. As you might imagine, they convince you that you are in need of repairs that you don’t need at all, plus blatantly they insist on doing the repairs themselves before you’ve had a opportunity to get other quotes, let alone feel about the decisions for a few minutes. To our luck, I told the guy that I would call him back plus then I sent him on his way. After looking online for a bit, I discovered that he was a wanted scammer plus I forwarded his information to the police. I never heard anything from the cops about the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C scammer, despite the fact that I hope they found him plus put him behind bars.
