Criminals doing "id theft" of legitimate contractors to scam consumers as imposters
WJLA7 in Washington (Sinclair) is advising users about another scam, possibly with Google Business.
In a few cases, criminals have changed the contact info for legitimate contractors and scammed homeowners after repairs.
Customers should verify phone contact in several sources (Including own website). Google is working on confirming address changes with contractors, possibly with 2-step identification.
