Stettler RCMP warn residents about paving scammers

Fly-by-night companies offer work at reduced costs

Stettler RCMP remind rural residents about a scam by fly-by-night companies, which typically involves the following:

• Someone representing a paving company will randomly attend the residence trying to offer a paving job;

• The person will often say they are finishing up a job nearby and have extra material they’d like to use; and

• They offer to do the paving job at a considerably reduced price because the resident will be doing them a favour by allowing them to use the left-over product.

The paving is completed using inferior materials. Within a year the paving will fail and fall apart. Attempts to locate the paving company or rep are unsuccessful. Stettler RCMP reminds citizens to do their due diligence and ensure any contract work they have done is by reputable people/companies. This may include conducting an online research, checking references or speaking personally with other clientele in the area.
