SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - March 17, 2022 - PRLog -- Too many times, homeowners are scammed by shady contractors who perform shoddy construction or take hard-earned money and disappear.  Now, there's an app for that.

Since 2009, The National Alliance Against Home Repair Fraud (NAAHRF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, has been educating homeowners on how to protect themselves from home repair fraud and scams.  "Every homeowner, at some point, will need to hire a service provider. Our mission is to educate you before you do, so you can become your own quality control manager when dealing with contractors," says Phae Moore, NAAHRF's Executive Director.  "It doesn't matter whether you need to put your home back on its foundation after a tornado, or just replace your pink bathtub, we urge everyone to educate themselves on the home repair process, especially how to set up a payment schedule with a contractor."  Moore says even though the most vulnerable to this method of fraud are seniors, disaster victims, those in low wealth communities, first-time homebuyers, those who speak English as a second language, and women, she says even mayors, celebrities, doctors, and politicians have been victims. Moore is also the author of "Don't Even Think About Ripping Me Off!" - a step-by-step guide on how to find, hire, work with, and pay contractors.

NAAHRF is excited to announce its new app in the Apple Store, Home Repair Helper, free to all iPhone users. "This app educates you on the do's and don'ts when dealing with contractors," says Moore. "And we are constantly upgrading it to make it more interactive."

NAAHRF is hoping for donations to pay the developer to duplicate this app in the Google Play Store, giving Android users access to this valuable and frustration-saving information as well.  "The second we have the money to put it on Android devices, we will, because I don't want anyone to miss out on this information. We keep getting calls from victims we could have helped, had we gotten to them before the bad guys did," says Moore.

You can download the Home Repair Helper app from NAAHRF's website, www.naahrf.org, or directly from the Apple Store.
