IT PAYS TO BE VIGILANT

   According to a person reporting on another Neighborhood Association website, she hired an electrician to work at her home, giving him a substantial down payment for the job.

   He never showed up to do the work and never returned dozens  of phone calls.  She then discovered that his license was no longer valid.

   To quote her: "And, in case you are wondering why I didn't check his license, it is because he had done various electrical jobs at my house since 2003, CCB License valid, never a problem. Go figure."

   This story points out that you can never be too careful in your dealings with your fellow man. I think the saying, "Trust, but verify", is most apropos.
