Warren County Warns Of Blacktop Scam

Posted: Updated:

A driveway blacktop scam is apparently circulating in Warren County. The Warren County Sheriff's Office says it has received reports of homeowners being contacted by a person claiming to have leftover materials from another job and offering to apply blacktop to driveways.

Upon completion, the bill is said to be much higher than what the homeowner expected. Officials caution residents to check business backgrounds or references before agreeing to unsolicited work.

If you are suspicious or feel you are being pressured into services officials say you should immediately contact the sheriff's office at (309) 734-8383.
