BEWARE OF TRAPS

SCAMS

Some people take advantage of natural disasters and new and old scams may become more common. 

 
 

CHEAP REPAIRS

There are people who appear soon after any natural disaster offering to fix things quickly and cheaply. But be very careful as there can be lots of problems. 

CLAIMS MANAGEMENT COMPANIES

These businesses promise to help you deal with the insurance company so that you can get paid. But they will take a (large) fee to do this and it is something you can do yourself. 

 

HIGH COST BUSINESS LOANS

It can be tempting to seek funds from lenders who promise to provide money quickly when your income has dropped substantially or you temporarily have no income. However, things can go horribly wrong very quickly.

 

PRE-INSOLVENCY ADVISERS

If your small business is in financial difficulty, be very wary of anyone cold-calling you bearing promises of financial salvation.
