Better Business Bureau Warns Of Summer Scams

(Springfield, IL) -- Summer scams are heating up and if people aren't careful, they may find themselves in a bad situation. Dennis Horton with the Better Business Bureau says people often let their guards down during the summer months and fall for all types of scams. Anyone looking to take a vacation should be sure to use a reputable travel agent and never buy concert tickets from people who only accept cash or want money wired through prepaid accounts. If you're looking to buy a car, hire a mover, or have some kind of work done on your home, be sure to review the contract carefully and work with local companies. It's also a good idea to check the company's complaint history on the Better Business Bureau website.
