Taylorville officials warn tornado victims of contractor scams
With all the homes destroyed, the city of Taylorville officials are warning victims to be aware of contractor scams.
Officials said if a contractor reaches out to you, you can call the City Clerk to make sure they are licensed.
The contractor must be approved before they work in the affected areas.
Also be aware of contractors charging up front because they are supposed to charge after the work is done.
If you believe a contractor is trying to take advantage of your situation, you can also reach out to the Taylorville's City Clerk for help.
