SHASTA COUNTY, Calif.- The Shasta County District Attorney is warning against fake contractors, this time after storm damage. 

The Better Business Bureau calls these types of scammers "storm chasers." 

The D.A. says that in order to protect yourself you need to do your research. Verify if the person is listed with the Contractors State License Board, and resist high-pressure sales. When paying contractors, pay them directly, preferably using a credit card. Signing insurance checks to contractors is risky. 

Plus, make sure to check with your insurance company before making any repairs. 

If you suspect a scam, call the Shasta County District Attorney's Office.

Back in the 80s on Monday with sunshine lasting all week next week. Windy and dry conditions Wednesday and Thursday will lead to elevated fire weather concerns.
