About three weeks ago, we posted an article about an article from the Better Business Bureau regarding asphalt paving scammers who go around to houses door-to-door, offering to perform work on driveways at dirt cheap prices.
Well, just yesterday a swindler in Maryland was sent to jail for racking up $63,000+ in fraudulent sales of pavement services, on top of $80,000 he swindled in South Carolina… and who knows how much more that we don’t even know about.
Fortunately he won’t be able to scam anybody else for the next two years as he will be spending his time in the crossbar motel. But, sadly, it’s doubtful that most of the victims– mostly senior citizens– will get their money back from him anytime soon, if ever.
So, once again, if any purported paving pro who pops up at your front door unexpectedly and offers to pave your driveway for a pittance, kick ’em to the curb! And do alert your local police department as this may be an illegal undertaking in your area.
As the saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. You’ve been warned…
