Houston County authorities are warning people to watch out for scam artists who are offering to pave driveways.
The suspects show up in a dump truck and claim to have some asphalt left over from a highway resurfacing job.
At least two victims have paid thousands of dollars for work that turned out to be substandard.
To make matters worse, the business name on the dump truck did not include an address, city or state and the telephone number on the vehicle turned out to be fake.
Commander Bill Land said the work done is so poorly that homeowners usually find cracks in the pavement and grass growing up through the asphalt within a few days.
