There have been recent cases in Austin and the surrounding areas for laborers targeting the elderly and the kind in our neighborhoods. This is a REMINDER for those who hire landscapers, handy men/women who solicit door to door, to NOT pay them until the work is done. There have been incidents growing with folks paying for a job ahead of time without the "contractor" starting or completing the work. If this has happened to you or you suspect that someone is not legitimate, please contact the Austin Police Department. If someone is actually at your house, call 911 or if it already occurred and you need to report it, call 311. Thank you!
