The Sawyer County Sheriff's Department is warning residents that asphalt scammers are once again traveling through the area.

According to the department, the “gypsy pavers” are known to prey on older residents. The scammers get a person to sign a contract for work and then complete the work unsatisfactorily and inflate the price.

The department said A & S Asphalt Paving of Wisconsin Dells, Joles Paving, and King’s Paving are a few names the scammers use. They said the companies change their names often in an effort to deceive people. 

Do not accept and pay for business from someone who seeks you out, said the department.
