The Williams County Sheriff’s Office is warning of some scams. According to Sheriff Steven Towns, typical scams involve driveway sealing, yard work and tree trimming, and roof, barn or house painting or repair. The sheriff’s office has already received tips on driveway scams so far this season.
Towns urges the public to “do a little bit of homework” on legitimacy and quality of work before accepting the service. Not all contractors or technical support representatives are scams, but if you suspect criminal activity, ask your neighbors or check with the Better Business Bureau.
