Home Improvement Scam In Moke Hill

Sponsored by:

A 79 year old Mokelumne Hill woman was scammed out of five thousand dollars by a fraudulent construction crew last week.

Alice Bass was approached at her home by a crew in a dump truck. The men told Bass that they had extra asphalt from a previous job and offered to pave her driveway for 200 dollars.

When the work was completed, the bill was changed to five thousand dollars. She wrote the crew a check and was given a disconnected phone number in return. Similar reports of home improvement fraud have been reported in Lodi and Sacramento. The Calaveras County Sheriff´s Department is investigating.
