Indiana Residents Cautioned Against ‘One-Day Deal’ Home Repair Scams

Indianapolis, IN – In the wake of recent storms, Indiana’s Department of Homeland Security is alerting residents to a surge in home repair scams. 

The department emphasizes that offers of ‘one-day deals’ or unusually steep discounts should raise immediate concerns. These offers are often a tactic used by illegitimate operations that lack a local presence or the proper business licensing. Hoosiers are urged to conduct due diligence by verifying contractors’ reputations, seeking recommendations from insurance providers, and demanding written agreements before any payment. 

The Department has made resources available for checking a company’s credentials and advises homeowners to secure multiple estimates to ensure fair pricing. If residents encounter any suspicious offers, they are encouraged to safeguard their community by reporting to the Indiana Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division. 

Assistance and reporting are accessible online at indianaconsumer.com or by calling 1-800-382-5516. This proactive stance by Indiana officials aims to empower homeowners with knowledge and resources to thwart opportunistic scammers in challenging times.
