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.
