Tree Trimming and Spraying Scams Popping Up In Amarillo

With it being summer time, bugs come out and trees grow and that means you need them trimmed or you need your house sprayed.  However, scams are popping up in Amarillo involving door to door salesman offering these services.


The Amarillo Police Department believes these scams are popping up in Amarillo.  So be wary and do your research.  There are many reputable businesses in Amarillo who do a great job.

Before deciding to hire someone, check out the person or business, especially if they come to your door.  All door to door salesman must apply for a permit through the Amarillo Police Department and must carry the permit with them.

Anyone offering to spray your house must operate under a permit through the Texas Department of Agriculture by asking these people if they have the proper permit and to verify that they do may help you to identify a scam artist.

Plus it is also best to check with the Better Business Bureau.

When in doubt just do a quick check on the internet to gather information about a person or business.

Be smart and be safe and do your research before you hand over your money.  What seems like a good deal at the time could end up costing you more money in the long run.
