Flint Area Elderly Being Scamed By Driveway Repair Workers [VIDEO]

Police say there’s a group of con-artists claiming to repair driveways for a pretty good deal – a deal that’s too good to be true.Police say a local  man was the target of this group, and he paid big money for a job that wasn’t well done. A surveillance photo shows a man in a baseball cap cashing a $1,300 check for a driveway sealing job. The driveway has anthills and weeds already growing through the cracks.

The daughter of the elderly couple says a group of five men came in a white pick-up truck, which was captured on a bank surveillance camera. The daughter, who did not want to be identified, was not at her parents home when they arrived.  Her dad was there by himself.

Police say a brochure was presented to the elderly man. The company exists, but the men don’t work there. Bottom line, if it sounds to good to be true it’s most likely not. Check before you write the check.

It’s believed the group of men started the scam in Saginaw County but have moved to Genesee County.
