    Transient Merchants (Source: ND Office of Attorney General, Consumer Protection Division)
    If someone comes to your door offering to do home repairs, ask to see the "Transient Merchant's License." All transient merchants must be licensed and bonded by the Licensing division of the Attorney General's office. You may be able to file a claim
    against the bond if you have a problem with the product or service.

    Contact the Licensing division at 701-328-2329 or check the current State Transient Merchant License holders online on the "License Holders" link.

    Contact your local law enforcement agency immediately if the contractor cannot produce the transient merchant license.
