While Sunday’s hailstorm certainly wasn’t a large-scale disaster, it did enough damage to set opportunists and scammers in motion. An elderly College Station resident received a suspicious call this morning from a roofing company that offered to evaluate her home for damage. 

If you get such a call, check with the Better Business Bureau to make sure the company is legitimate and has a good reputation. Roofing contractors also must be registered with the City of College Station and are required to obtain a building permit.
