Scam Alert

WARNING-SOLAR ENERGY INSTALLATIONS CAN ‘BURN’ YOU!

 

THE PROBLEM:

You “went solar” or got a new water heater or put in artificial turf or installed new energy efficient windows but now you have a much bigger property tax bill.

HERE’S WHAT CAN HAPPEN:

You receive a visit from someone who offers to help you lower your energy or water bills.  You may be told it will also help the environment.  You are told that it is a “government–sponsored program”.  That person implies it is free, especially for seniors.

You had that energy upgrade installed but the product was substandard, the installation was sloppy, they damaged your property during the installation.

You get behind on your property bill and may be at risk of foreclosure!

WHAT TO DO:  Take your time before you sign!

MAKE SURE YOU ASK FOR A PRINTED COPY OF ALL DOCUMENTS TO READ BEFORE YOU ALLOW ANYONE TO WORK ON YOUR HOME.

Elder Law & Advocacy will review any documents with you for free, before you sign up or after you have had an installation completed.
