 Regional flooding and debris from Hurricane Matthew may bring a tide of scam artists who promise home repairs. Scam artists will leave property owners high and dry.

“In previous weather events, we have heard reports of home owners who paid deposits on materials and the contractor never returned to complete the work,” said Randell Woodruff, Pender County manager. “We have heard reports where contractors charged outrageous fees for trimming broken limbs and not cleaning away the debris.”

Pender County officials urge residents to beware of scam artists in the aftermath of the historic floods in the county.

“Local chambers of commerce in Burgaw and the Greater Topsail area represent local reputable businesses,” said Chuck Strickland, the director of the Greater Topsail Area Chamber of Commerce. “Residents requiring home repair can find contractors on our websites or on our downloadable app.”

Residents are also urged to be alert to scam artists who claim to be gathering donations for flood victims. Residents who want to donate should give through churches, civic organizations, and to the Gateway Community Church, 416 W. Bridger St. in Burgaw. The church is serving as a distribution center. For details call Pastor Ted Mercer at 910-604-0071.

Residents are urged to report scam artists to local law enforcement agencies.
