Consumer Tip of the Week - Consumer Alert - Tree Trimming Service
We have received reports that there are suspicious persons going door to door in the county who claim to be doing “tree trimming” or some other task and they are charging outrageous fees. They have business cards, work order forms and they carry a chain saw and climbing belt in their truck – to give an appearance of legitimacy - however they are not licensed or insured. They also have a pattern of coming back numerous times to anyone who hires them to obtain more money. Please do not engage anyone that shows up at your door and solicits. DO NOT LET ANYONE INTO YOUR HOME
If you have a senior citizen in your neighborhood who may be living alone, please have a conversation with them and warn them about these predators. Always contact the police at their non-emergency number, 301-279-8000 when you see anything or anyone suspicious in your neighborhood.
