Be wary of door-to-door paving contractor
10/19/2018

(KNZA)--The Brown County Sheriff is warning residents to be wary of door-to-door paving contractors.

Sheriff John Merchant says residents in the northern part of the county have informed him that they’ve been approached by two men wanting to pave/asphalt their driveways.  The men are driving a dark colored 4-door pickup truck.

Residents are told that they need a $500 cash deposit to buy material
and to schedule the work.  They  promise to have a crew on  site within
the next few weeks, weather permitting.  When asked for a card or company
information, the residents were told they did not have the information with them but would bring it back at a later date and a contract would be mailed with all the details.  

Merchant said there is limited information as to license plate but it appeared to be out of state.

Merchant is reminding residents to make sure they are dealing with credible contractors when hiring a job done.  He said they should be able to provide you identification, references and information about their company upon request.   

Merchant says if your approached by these two men, contact your local law enforcement at once.
