Contractor Scams - Part I

It is the time of the year for driveway coating scams.

In southeast Michigan a scam crew offered to seal coat a driveway for less than $100, and then extorted $4000 from an elderly woman for doing a “deluxe” job.

Most of these jobs involve smearing the driveway with used motor oil which will run off with the first hard rain.

Never authorize unknown contractors to do a job for you because they have a “really great price.”

If the scammers are persistent call 911 and ask for police assistance.
