Carroll County Sheriff Reports New Scam


CARROLL COUNTY, Miss.–A scam involving gravel and asphalt has been reported in Carroll County.

Sheriff Clint Walker says people pretending to be contractors offer homeowners what they claim to be leftover asphalt, gravel or other materials at cheap prices. When the homeowner agrees, they dump the materials then demand hundreds and even thousands of dollars.
The contractors or scammers then bully them into paying.
Walker says people often don’t report these kinds of scams out of embarrassment, but that if it happens to you by all means report it.
