Rockland D.A. talks home contractor scams

Rockland County District Attorney Tom Zugibe sat down with News 12 to warn homeowners about home contracting scams as the summer months approach.

Zugibe says that his office is already working on several cases of home contracting scams. He says that the crimes typically happen when a homeowner provides a payment up front to a contractor who then never finishes the work.

Zugibe says there are many ways for homeowners to avoid being scammed, including never giving large up front deposits.
