Have You Done Your Taxes Yet?

This year, the cases for tax scams are expected to increase with every week that taxes are not filed. The more time you provide scammers to file your tax return for you, the more chance you have of not receiving it yourself. While we do not want to induce anxiety, we want you to be armed with the facts so you are not a victim this tax season.

When you are scammed of your tax return, it is very difficult to try to get that money back.

100 Unlicensed Contractors Arrested!

100 Unlicensed Contractors Arrested!

Breaking news! Over 100 people were arrested in Tampa, Florida, for selling unqualified contracting services. The "Operation House Hunters" in Hillsborough County focused on catching criminals who were taking advantage of the growing housing market. The fraudulent freelancers would advertise through social media platforms like Facebook or would post ads on Craigslist, even on their cars. These "contractors" would perform unlicensed work that could endanger the lives of their targets. Eight repeat offenders were arrested during the nine-month search, one of them a man with a history of burglary and another a registered sex offender. Seniors who are hoping to save money on home repairs must be extra vigilant of where they spend their hard-earned money.
