A Lawrence residence was recently scammed.
A group of guys (6 young guys and an older man) went to a home asking the home owner if he wanted the patch on his driveway asphalted since they had some left over from a job they just did on Andover Street. He said it would be $4 a square foot. Before the home owner knew what was happening they were dumping the asphalt and then was told that he owed the scammers $1,000.
The money was paid by check. The scammers gave some measurements the home owner had no idea what asphalt costs. The area fixed was about 12x7 feet and should have been about $300. There has been no response to follow up calls. They said their business was in Seabrook (Stanley Construction) but the person the check was made out to was George Stanley and he was listed as being in North Hampton.
Please be aware of this and many others scammers. If you are not sure when someone comes to your door call the Police Station and an Officer will come and check the person out.
If anyone has dealing with George Stanley please contact Lawrence Police at 978-794-5900.
