BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says North Dakota residents should be careful when hiring companies to repair storm damage from recent bad weather.

The attorney general said Tuesday that scam artists move in with severe weather. He says residents who want to get homes and vehicles fixed shouldn’t make it easy for scammers to take advantage.

Stenehjem says people should make sure the contractor is properly licensed and get a written contract with details about the repairs to be completed.

Parrell Grossman is director of the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection division. Grossman advises property owners to ask questions of contractors and to double check what they say.
