It has been reported to our agency that we have a group of individuals in our county preying on the elderly. They are arriving at the residence in large numbers and start spreading roadway material on driveways and roads. Then after they have done that, without the homeowners permission, they try to get the homeowners to pay several thousand dollars. Most recently the homeowner was asked to pay $14,000 settling on $2,000. We advise to use caution when dealing with these types of individuals. In most cases this is a scam. As always if you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
