The post-Sept. 11 era has brought a disturbing number of contractors and salespeople trying to profit from businesses' concerns about terrorism. Example: A Virginia HVAC repairman was sentenced last month to 2 1/2 years in prison for trying to extort money from mall owners by issuing "reports" from his phony consulting firm that claimed to show the malls' vulnerability to terrorist attacks.
