SCSO issues scam alert
The Searcy County Sheriff's Office wants to make people aware of a scam in the county.
The scam consists of an individual or individuals going door to door wanting to re-seal or seal the homeowner's driveway.
After putting an unknown liquid on the driveway, the scammer charges a substantial amount of money, sometimes in the thousands, and then leaves. Within 24 hours the driveway returns to its original condition. It appears that the scammer is targeting elderly residents.
After collecting a check for payment, the scammer immediately cashes the check and moves on. If you encounter such a scam, please contact the Searcy County Sheriff's Office.
