There are many scams out there, but some are more seasonal than others.
Like door to door scams, which are more prevalent during summer.
CEO of the Saskatchewan Better Business Bureau Karen Smith says when someone comes to your door, don’t let them in.
Ask for I-D, a direct selling business licence and a city or town permit and make sure to research them.
For example, someone may come to your door after a storm saying they can repair your roof, but first they need some cash to pay for shingles.
Smith says if you give a scammer the money, you’ll never see them again.
Driveway repairs, where someone offers to pave, patch or apply protective treatment to your driveway is another common scam.
The Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority says get their licence and check with the FCAA and the Better Business Bureau before agreeing to anything.
A few more scams to be aware of include selling concert or event tickets online.
Smith says unless you are buying them from a reputable site, you don’t know for sure if you will actually get the tickets after you pay your money.
