Storm Clean Up Leads to Scams

Bills that seem way too high, exceed estimates or just reports of shoddy work. Complaints like these are piling up at the Better Business Bureau in the aftermath of December's storms.

Extensive coverage acted like a beacon drawing fly-by-night repair to a new region, according to the BBB. the organization's president Joyce Woodward reminds anyone intending to hire a company that they ensure it is a Kansas based firm.

Also, it recommends getting a written agreement, including the cost and what the bid covers, before any work begins.

Before any electrical work or tree removal is done, contact the BBB at www.bbb.org or call 785-232-0454.
