Beware of Blacktop Scammers

The St. Marys police department has issued a warning to watch out for people showing up at your door wanting to do blacktopping.

Police said the scammers use a truck or van with some material on board, which they tell residents is leftover from previous jobs. They typically request payment up-front.

While reports of possible scammers have come from the St. Marys area, residents should be wary of anyone offering similar services and requesting immediate up-front payment.

It is recommend to always check references and use a contract for construction projects.
