HAMILTON COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) - Police say people representing a paving company are targeting the elderly and people who live in rural areas.
Hamilton County officials say the person from a paving company calls and offers to use leftover materials from a nearby job to make driveway repairs.
When the job is half done, the crew will increase the price of the job, officials say.
But, officials say the workers use "shoddy materials" to make the repairs. Instead of using hot asphalt, they use cold asphalt grindings.
One victim in Westfield told police she paid about $7,800 dollars for a job worth $1,500.
Investigators encourage you never to do business with a paving company operating door-to-door.
