report from Times Square. 3 It's not 2014 yet but a Jacksonville woman's new year will be off to a rough start. She says she was scammed out of thousands of dollars worth of home repairs she didn't even ask for.. Police say it happened just a week before Christmas. Tim Pulliam is live now with more. 3 3 e woman says two men showed up at her home unannounced and offered to trim a tree in her yard.. it snowballed from there By the time it was over, she cut them a check for 3-thousand dollars and they left with some of the repairs not finished. 3 00-0623-29 I'm just disappointed.I'm just hurt and embarrassed for my friends and my family.I needed that money. But there's no way Helen Cunningham can get her money back now.She feels duped.The 80 year says she was in her yard when two men in a white truck approached her offering their services.060955 The young one said oh I notice that tree is all over your house and I said I had it all taken care of it was going to be done.But Cunningham says the two men insisted - offering to cut each branch off for $1.00 a branch . Unfortunately, the seemingly low cost repair s didn't stop there.Cunningham says the men got on her roof and told her it had holes that needed to be filled.Then they sprayed the her roof with tar.The cost $4600.When Cunningham told the men she could n't afford that, They settled for 3,000 dollars .She says she wrote them a check.061052 They just intimidated me and scared me. I was shaking. Why did they intimidate you? There was two of them.Cunningham says within thirty minutes after they left, the check was cashed. She says she knew then she had been suckered.062035 $3000 is a lot of money to lose around the holidays. It's crazy. I could kick him.062001 I've learned not to trust anybody unless I call them myself and ask them to come do the work. Cunningham says she's concerned she may have to hire someone to see if the men did any damage to her roof.Tonight she says she will have to cut back on her expenses and likely take out a loan to recoup some of the money she's lost. Tim ... did she call the police? is there anything police can do.
