Fayetteville Police Department Offers Fraud Tips
 The Fayetteville Police Department reminds citizens to be cautious of agreeing to services offered by people claiming to be legitimate contractors for repairs or home improvement jobs offering “great deals”.  While there may be legitimate deals out there with legitimate sales people, be smart about agreeing work that seems too good to be true or from contractors who show up unannounced and uninvited.              Make sure your contractor is reputable. Ask friends for their opinions and advice on selecting an honest contractor if you don't know any. Once you select a contractor, research the internet to see if there are any negative comments about them. You can also check with the Better Business Bureau, building inspectors or your insurance company.

            Always ask the contractor for their own references and get a written estimate from them before they begin any work. Do not pay for the entire job before work has begun and don't make a final payment until you are happy with the results.
