Storm prompts unlicensed tradespeople warning

24 August 2012

With severe weather lashing the state, South Australian consumers should be wary of opportunistic unlicensed traders soliciting property repairs, says Acting Commissioner for Consumer Affairs Anne Gale.

“In the last 36 hours State Emergency Services have responded to more than 300 calls for help from the South Australian community, and unlicensed and dishonest traders may take advantage of consumers who have had property damaged by the storms” Ms Gale said.
