Breaking news! Over 100 people were arrested in Tampa, Florida, for selling unqualified contracting services. The “Operation House Hunters” in Hillsborough County focused on catching criminals who were taking advantage of the growing housing market. The fraudulent freelancers would advertise through social media platforms like Facebook or would post ads on Craigslist, even on their cars. These “contractors” would perform unlicensed work that could endanger the lives of their targets. Eight repeat offenders were arrested during the nine-month search, one of them a man with a history of burglary and another a registered sex offender.
