‘Preying on Homeowners’

Email Print

Writes Roland Walkenhorst:

“Unlicensed contractors are coming out of the woodwork” after Sandy, warns NBC. Why, these vermin are actually “going door-to-door, luring you in with low, low prices”! One of the criminals (2:08) even brought a state-of-the-art boom truck, all the better to deceive vulnerable storm victims.

Thank goodness the heroic license-checker shows up just as this lowlife is preparing to adapt his expertise to the task at hand. “We’re taking a tree off somebody’s house [for crying out loud],” he pleads. Ha! That’s what they all say!
