BRANSON, Mo. – Branson Police Department is warning residents in and around the Branson area of a scam involving a business claiming to be a roofing company.

According to a press release from the city, the business is trying to pressure residents to conduct business over the phone. This particular company is calling residents from a Thayer, Missouri phone number and giving a sales pitch over the phone. 

However, when you try to call the number back, you get a busy signal and the business doesn’t seem to exist.

Police warn resident to never feel pressured to do business or leave a deposit, especially over the phone.

Residents can always call the city of Branson at 417-334-3345 to see if a specific company has a business license.
