Acting Police Chief W. Arthur is alerting the citizens to a SCAM being conducted in the area.  The scam artists are doing chimney work – fixing, cleaning, replacing flues, etc.  They quote one price and have you sign a “blank” contract.  When work is done, they produce an extremely inflated priced bill.  They are traveling in a white van, with NY State registration.  They solicit by phone or door-to-door, stating they noticed you need repair work on your chimney.  DO NOT sign a BLANK contract, and ONLY do business with contractors you have called, or have checked their credentials with the Better Business Bureau.

NOTE: There has been similar contractors repairing, etc. and while doing the repairs, they have entered the residence and stolen valuables (money, jewelry, etc.).  BE CAUTIOUS AND VIGILANT at all times.
