[ARCHIVED] Police Alert: Home Improvement Scams

Beware - It's that time of year again when Home Improvement scams surface with more frequency. Currently, individuals are approaching residents, particularly the elderly, and offering services to seal their driveway against the approaching inclement weather.

Two issues are 1) These individuals put down a light wash which does nothing to seal the driveway and leave before the resident notices the inferior work. They are not licensed by the State and cannot be easily located. Always ask to see their license to do Home Improvements. 2) It is also noted that when residents are approached for driveway sealing, the individual is also checking the house for occupants, if any, and a burglary follows shortly thereafter.

Please do not accept any unsolicited 'DEALS' and contact the Trumbull Police about these suspicious individuals immediately. Call Detective Rocco Testi at 203-261-3665 ex. 250 with any information or questions.
