May 15, 2019 is National Senior Fraud Awareness Day!

senior fraud BLOG2

In 2018, the U.S. Senate designated May 15 as National Senior Fraud Awareness Day.

They took this action in order to raise awareness about the growing number of fraudulent activities specifically directed at older adults across the country, to encourage the implementation of policies designed to prevent these scams, and to improve protections for seniors.

Sean McCutcheon’s Air Conditioning and Heating can’t stop IRS impersonation scams, charity fraud or identity theft, but we can help stop predatory HVAC contractors from taking advantage of seniors in our community by teaching them how to spot a con so they can protect themselves.

Common scams include:

  • Offering you a low-priced inspection then trying to sell you unnecessary and expensive repairs.
  • Using scare tactics such as the threat of mold to sell additional services or extended warranties.
  • Promoting free service calls then overcharging you for repairs you didn't need in the first place.

We’re so committed to fraud awareness and prevention that we created a website called Americas Repair Force (www.americasrepairforce.com) and a series of humorous videos designed to protect you from predatory contractors and help you avoid scams.

Don't be fooled, call Sean McCutcheon's Air Conditioning and Heating at 941-921-7208 for a free second opinion or whenever a deal sounds to good to be true!
