Authorities warn of possible roofing scams

Oklahoma City_State and local officials are warning property owners with damage from the Feb. 10 tornadoes and storms to beware of possible roofing scams.  State Attorney General's Spokesman Charlie Price says in some cases the homeowner pays for roofing work but the work isn't completed.

Price says some work is done poorly and when the roofer leaves the state the homeowner has little or no recourse.  Oklahoma city roofing company owner Erik Van de Steeg says some roofers will get a local phone number and buy the name of former roofing company.  Better Business Bureau Director Rusty Trail says 27 roofers and general contractors have become members since Feb. 11. He says homeowners should ask how long a roofer has been a member. 

The tornadoes killed eight people in Lone Grove and caused damage in Oklahoma City, Edmond and in Carter, Coal, Love and Logan counties.
