CLARKSVILLE, IN (WAVE) – Police say an con artist is back on
the streets and targeting residents in Clark County.
According to Clark County police, the suspect will go to homes and
offer to repave driveways. He tells residents they will need to pay for half
of the driveway up front and that he will purchase materials and return to
finish the work in the morning. However, the man does not come back and instead the victim is out
hundreds of dollars.
Officers call it the Seal Driveway Scam and said the perpetrators
To avoid being a victim police advise residents not to pay in
advance and to write the license numbers of the vehicle that offers them
services. Also check to see if the person offering to do work is insured and
check with police to see if anyone has already been scammed by this person.
