Driveway Paving Scam Back In Yakima

The paver scam is back in the valley and the Better Business Bureau of Eastern Washington is warning people to watch for the scammers.

The BBB’s Chelsea McGuire says people are knocking on doors saying they have extra asphalt left over from a job and can do your job cheap.

McGuire says that is the first red flag because legitimate businesses would never have left over asphalt from a previous job.

“Professional companies know exactly how much asphalt they need for every job and would never have enough left over to give you a good deal.”

Union Gap property owner Steve Simon says he is seeing the scammers operating in his city and has been able to help others in his city to avoid becoming a victim.

“Get three bids and make sure you drive around the look at the jobs they’ve done. Stay local.”

That is the same advice from the BBB. They say that a local company with a good track record should be hired.
