BOONE COUNTY - The Attorney General's Office notified the Boone County Sheriff's Department this week about several incidents of asphalting scams.

According to the Boone County Sheriff's Department, the suspects are hauling a roller and reportedly driving new Dodge pickup trucks and a dump truck.

On May 27, a citizen in the 12100 block of North Route Z told deputies a man stopped at her home and offered to do asphalting with materials left over from a nearby job. In another incident, an elderly woman in the Route OO area near Hallsville, was reportedly scammed out of $11,000.

The Sheriff's Department urges citizens to be wary of unsolicited offers by asphalters, roofers or other types of home improvement sales people. The Sheriff's Department also said before agreeing to any extensive home improvement project a citizen should seek out bids from different companies based on recommendations from friends, family, neighbors and co-workers.

For more information contact the Sheriff's Department at 875-1111 or the Attorney General's Office at (800) 392-8222.
