Memorial Day Roof Scams

memorial dayAs families gather to spend time together and remember our fallen soldiers this Memorial Day, scam artists will be on the prowl for new victims. Unfortunately, holidays bring out some of the worst in business related crimes and many fraudulent companies see a time of celebration as an open door for tricking consumers.


The Better Business Bureau has released a warning to consumers to be on the lookout for scams over the upcoming Memorial Day holiday. Anyone from handymen to roof contractors has the potential to be represented by the worst of the worst. Although there are plenty of high quality roofers around, many fraudulent companies impersonate the good hoping to take advantage of unsuspecting consumers.

In order to combat these risks to homeowners, the BBB has outlined a list of the most common scams observed around this time of year:

  • Roof salesmen offering deals for military servicemen or those displaying support for the soldiers
  • Solicitors posing as representatives from the Veterans Administration, asking for personal or financial information
  • Salesmen offering pre-approved Veteran loans for mortgages or credit cards
  • Impersonate servicemen asking for financial help to get home or pay for medical bills
