Consumer Alert: There's No Such Thing as a Free Lunch

Out-of-state home improvement scammers are back in Alaska. Beware solicitations inviting you to a free lunch. Lunch will include a hard sell for expensive home improvements such as insulation, roofing, or driveway paving. Local officials have identified free lunch events in Mat-Su that are parting elderly homeowners with their hard earned dollars.

Remember that when contractors are meeting you at a restaurant, it may mean that they have no local licenses or business presence. If something goes wrong with their work, they will be long gone and it will cost you even more to fix the problem. Be wary of door-to-door solicitations as well as invitations to a free lunch. If you need repairs to your home, do your research and use a reliable, local contractor licensed to do business in Alaska.
