On May 2, Troopers from The New Hampshire State Police, Troop – C responded to the Town of Springfield, NH, to investigate a number of reports of a driveway paving scam along Main Street. According to one of the victims, a paving company arrived on his property on the morning of April 28th. The work crew then began unloading paving equipment and started working on his driveway.
The homeowner reported that he was confused and confronted the paving crew who used high pressure sales tactics and coerced him into allowing them to begin a low-cost paving project. The job ultimately came with a much larger than expected price tag, which was later discounted if the victim agreed to pay cash. One victim agreed to pay over $10,000 before the paving crew packed up and left the job incomplete and his driveway in disrepair.
The incidents in Springfield, NH, are currently under investigation by the Springfield, NH, Police Dept. and NH State Police. State Police are asking that anyone with information regarding this matter or similar incidents to contact Trooper Michael McLaughlin at 603-223-8855.
