What are "Travelers?"

Submitted by Doug Doe on Mon, 06/06/2016 - 5:22pm

The Oklahoma Office of the Attorney General has received reports of criminals called "Travelers" in tornado affected areas. With several tornado damaged areas opening up this weekend, AG investigators are very concerned that these fake contractors will begin targeting affected areas.

These con-artists travel from state to state, preying on storm victims' vulnerability. While several residents will want to clean their property, trim trees or begin to rebuild as quickly as possible, Attorney General Pruitt warns them to be alert of these criminals who pose as contractors. Do not agree to pay cash up front for the entire job and use local reputable businesses.
