``The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) reposted one of its earliest blog postings today to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy avoid the types of crimes that invariably follow any big disaster. The Bureau said consumers should be watchful as they start the clean-up and repairs and be aware that some crooks live for the opportunities a disaster presents. Homeowners can be victimized by shoddy workmanship or by persons using the access a disaster presents to set victims up for larger scams. ''
