Retract That Contracting Offer

, , , | Legal | June 22, 2019

(In California, you can look up contractors’ licenses statewide to see if they’re valid. I work for the local government’s building department and can also see local projects going on for companies and contractors. There is also a well-known scam in the area.)

Scammer: “Hi! May I speak with [My Name]?”

Me: “Speaking.”

Scammer: “Well, we’re finishing up a job in your neighborhood off of [Street I live on], and we’re wondering if we could come by and give you a quote on having some work done?”

Me: What’s your contractor’s license number?”

Scammer: “Funny. Real funny.” *click*
