Sandy ravaged New York a year ago. Yet, as families still struggle to put their lives together, there are scam artists preying on their frustration and desperation with getting repairs, struggling to keep their homes, or dealing with state and federal agencies. Reports have found that scam artists posing as contractors or foreclosure “rescue” specialists have surfaced. As a result, the Center for NYC Neighborhoods created these Public Service Announcements to warn people dealing with the aftermath of Sandy about these scam artists.
Remember that if you are suspicious about an individual or business offering services to Sandy victims for a charge, please contact the NYC Department of Investigation Hurricane Sandy Hot Line(212) 825-5959. You can also email them at: SandyFraud@doi.nyc.gov
