CONCORD, N.H.—The New Hampshire Attorney General's office is warning residents to be wary of people offering to clean up or make repairs following last week's wind storm.

Attorney General Michael Delaney says there are always unscrupulous individuals who devise scams to take advantage of people in need and to profit from someone else's loss.

Delaney says people should be careful when someone knocks on their door or calls offering repair services.

He says the elderly are prone to being targets of the scams.

He urges New Hampshire residents to watch out for elderly family members or neighbors and beware if a contractor pressures for immediate payment.

Delaney says if anyone feels uncomfortable in dealing with a contractor they should contact the police.
