SHERIFF WARNS RESIDENTS OF POSSIBLE ASPHALT SCAM
 
The Park County Communications Center has received several complaints from county residents of a possible scam involving asphalt paving.  The scam involves work crews going door-to-door and offering to pave driveways for an exceptionally low price due to the asphalt being left over from a previous job site.  Once the work is completed, the crew increases the price and in several instances, the work itself was substandard. 
 
One resident agreed to have the crew do his driveway for $3.00 per square foot.  When the work was completed, they increased the price to $12.00 per square foot.  Unknown to him, the crew approached his wife for payment and, not knowing about the increase in price, she went ahead and paid them in cash for the work.
 
Sheriff Steward warns residents to always do business with a reputable company and always get a written estimate and/or contract prior to any work being started.  Also be wary of door-to-door contractors who offer services at a price that appears to be unreasonably low.  Most reputable companies do not do business in this manner.  “The bottom line: if it appears to be too good to be true, it usually isn’t,” commented Sheriff Steward.
 
There are varying descriptions of the vehicles and persons involved in this scam.  Should residents be approached by these contractors, feel free to call the sheriff’s dispatch center at 307-527-8700 to report the activity.
