Kalamazoo Sheriff's Office Warns of Home Improvement Scams

by

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office is warning area residents about a group of scam artists posing as home improvement specialists.  The group is thought to have been working in the Schoolcraft and Three Rivers area and targets the elderly.

They'll approach homeowners offering to spray roofs, paint houses, or repave a driveway or parking lot.  Sometimes they'll finish a job and then demand payment that is significantly higher than the earlier quoted estimate, and if they do the work at all it's said to be of low quality.  If they can convince homeowners to pay up front, they'll simply take the money and never return.

They ask that any one that has been approached or has been a victim of the group to contact their local police.
