Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden joined us on the show this morning to give details on the task force put together by the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office to help residents avoid contractor fraud as they try to rebuild from Sandy.

The task force has been set up to protect residents from fraud as well as make it easier, having to only deal with one agency as opposed to dealing with a number of agencies. It is set up to be a one stop shop for concerned consumers.The task force will review all complaints submitted and then determine what actions, if any need to be taken from there.

Sheriff Golden said to check for appropriate licenses and to be cautious of "cash up front" dealings. If you want more information or if you need to file a complaint, you can either call 855 SANDY 39, or you can visit the website at www.sandyfraud.com.
