(WBNG Binghamton) Governor Andrew Cuomo issued a warning for those New Yorkers who have experienced damages during Hurricane Sandy.

According to the Governor's office, home repair fraud increases greatly following a major storm.

There are a few tips to keep you save during your rebuilding.

Be cautious of anyone who comes to your home offering to make repairs immediately.

Look out for anyone who talks too quickly in an attempt to confuse or pressure you to sign a contract.

Also, if it sounds too good to be true, then it's probably not true.

If you think you have been a victim of a scam, you should consult a lawyer immediately.
