Victims of recent tornadoes that ravaged central Illinois will soon start rebuilding damaged property. The Illinois Insurance Association urges residents to be on the alert for scam artists posing as legitimate building contractors. Illinois’ Consumer Protection Against Storm Chasers Act protects citizens from those who would prey on them following a natural disaster. The law applies to storm-related repairs linked to insurance settlements. Contractors are prohibited from rebating or waiving the policy deductible and cannot represent or negotiate on behalf of the homeowner in the claim process.
