Travelling Con Men
Did You Know?
How You Can Be Affected
Con men usually try to undertake “today-only” work for cash payments. One common trick has been to knock on the door of a home owner and tell them that they have some asphalt left over from a nearby job and offer to seal their driveway for cash up front. They may disappear as soon as they have received the cash. Alternatively, they may offer to do some painting, tree lopping or other home repairs and stress the fact that they are available on that day to do the job for you.
