NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Hurricane Sandy brought huge amounts of destruction to the Tri-State Area. In the days that followed, we saw both the best of humanity and its worst, as looting and other safety issues became a growing concern. Now there’s a new problem: Sandy scammers. These are price gougers, people who pretend to work for an official agency but don’t, the list (anecdotally) seems shockingly long.

We at CBS are looking out for you. Have you heard of a Sandy scam? Know of a business that is gouging? Know of a fake contractor who’s hustling people out of money? Anything like that? Let us know about it.
