Home-improvement scams proliferate in spring
Spring was but a few days old when the Worcester Police Department issued a scam alert about pavers going door-to-door with a story about having leftover asphalt so they could fill your driveway potholes - cheap. Then they tell you that you owe them a lot more money. They tend to target seniors, who are often more likely to succumb to face-to-face pressure. They just as easily could have been sketchy roofers or shady jacks of some other trade.
