Vermont and New Hampshire State Police
are searching for a man wanted for home improvement fraud.
Police say Roger Bernier, 47, of
Manchester, N.H., is wanted in Vermont and New Hampshire for five counts of
fraud. Investigators say the common scheme is for a contractor to receive
payment for work on a residence and then disappear without completing the work.
Police advise that you should always
make sure the contractor has insurance, get the work order in writing,
including a finish date and keep a record of all money transactions.
