Barron Co. Sheriff's Department warning Cumberland residents of hail damage scam


Barron Co. (News Release) - The Sheriff's Department has been receiving several calls from residents in the Cumberland area complaining of calls from a company stating that they will be at their residence at a certain time to give them an estimate due to the recent hail damage in the area.

We believe this to be a scam. Please report these calls to the Sheriff's Department and call us immediately if someone shows up at your house so we can determine if this company is legitimate. We believe that they may calling to see if anyone is at home before they pull in. We are not sure of their intentions and a name we have been given is Total Construction. We don't believe this is a real business name. After Monday's call, no one showed up at the time given.

-Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald
