This scam might begin with a flyer you find on your mail box, an email or a call. The scammer will offer you the real deal, either a cheap price or a short period of time to do the construction work. However, once they started working they will raise the price significantly by finding extra issues that were not discussed at the beginning and threaten to leave it unfinished unless you pay them, or accept an upfront deposit but never come to do the work.
