Avoiding Home Improvement Scams Toolkit

In support of the Ohio Department of Insurance’s efforts to investigate home repair contractors believed to be committing insurance fraud, this online toolkit was created to educate consumers on how to avoid being a fraud victim after a natural disaster and to remind contractors of their obligation to conduct their business in an ethical manner. For more information regarding this educational initiative, please contact the department’s fraud division at 1-800-686-1527.

Stakeholders in this effort include: the National Insurance Crime Bureau, the Ohio Insurance Institute, Ohio-domiciled property and casualty insurance companies, the Independent Insurance Agents of Ohio, the Professional Insurance Agents Association of Ohio, and other interested parties where appropriate.
