(09/21/10) BROOKLYN - The Better Business Bureau is warning Brooklyn residents tonight about shady businesses trying to turn a profit on cleaning up from last week?s tornado.

The bureau also suggests getting three bids for repair work, trying to always pay by credit card and to watch workers on the job.
