. Unfortunately, in the wake of naturalĀ  disasters, homeowners also need to be aware of potential scammers looking to take advantage of the situation.

Protect yourself if you are hiring a company or contractor to remove trees, limbs, or other debris:


  • Use only licensed contractors
  • Beware of individuals who approach you and ask for money before a job is completed
  • Once money has been exchanged, this becomes a civil contract
  • Windermere requires all companies to obtain a solicitation permit from WPD BEFORE they can knock on doors
  • Contact the Windermere Police Department if you believe you’ve been a victim of a scam or would like to report suspicious behavior 407-876-3757
