LAFAYETTE, La — The Lafayette Police Department has received several reports in March of driveway repair scammers operating within the City of Lafayette.
The suspects are targeting older citizens by telling them they can repair the cracks in their driveways.
Without providing a quote, the suspects repair the driveway and demand payment for the work.
The work the suspects are conducting is of poor quality.
Police are asking citizens to request references and check with the Better Business Bureau as to the validity of the company. In the cases reported to the police, the suspects claimed to be from Indiana.
