It is time for all the con-men and scam-artists to arrive to remove money from your pockets and stuff it in their pockets and satchels.  These cretins scam anyone they are able …  time and again …  and they travel long distances to use their criminal skills.  They victimize seniors and single moms with limited income after befriending and convincing the victim that repairs are needed to a roof, siding, driveway or any number of other pretended home deficiencies.

The Washington Post has published an article with an attached video that every senior, single parent or the children of seniors should read to become somewhat familiar with the methods used by the scam-artists.
