OKLAHOMA CITY -- Police say as the temperatures drop the number of home repair rip-offs is growing.

In Oklahoma, where damage from things like ice storms is common, police said it could happen to anyone.

"Damage to roofs, tree limbs, things like that, that result from ice storms or wind damage or things like that occur, and as a result the pickings are a little bit better for those who would take advantage," Captain Leonard Judy with the Norman Police Department said.

If you have been scammed, police say make sure you get some type of look at the vehicle or license plate if possible.
