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.

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.The Bottom Line: Driveway Scam
