WHY? Why would you kick somebody when there down? I just don't get it. When the last hurricane hit here in Houston, a big thing was for fake contractors get people to pay for them to fix their house then take off with the money. Scumbags......

Yeah it's sad really. But it will mostly happen to elderly people who know someone in the area and they will sign up and be taken for everything they have.

That's just the statistic, not picking on elderly people.
