The Bottom Line: Driveway Scam
Updated: Wednesday, March 26 2014, 09:13 PM EDT
SCHENECTADY -- Not even a week into spring, and already a Bottom Line Alert that seems to crop up every spring.
Police are putting out the warning that in just the last two weeks, there have been "several" reports of driveway repair scams in the areas of Schenectady and Colonie.
CBS6's Dori Marlin has gotten The Bottom Line on such driveway repair scams in the past.
In these new cases, Schenectady Police say driveway pavers have been doing the repair work first - then ringing doorbells and demanding payment.
Police say it also appears the scammers are targeting the elderly.If someone like this shows up at your house, or at a loved one's - or if they already have shown up - you're asked to contact Schenectady Police.
