Morristown Police Department Issues Scam Warning

MORRISTOWN, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The Morristown Police Department would like to caution the community about reported scams in the area. It has been reported that individuals have been soliciting roofing and driveway sealing jobs by contacting elderly people at their home who have not asked to have any repairs made.

The individuals, who are described as two white males in their mid-30s or 40s driving an older model grey truck, then demand cash in advance of doing the job. Once they have the cash in hand they leave without performing any work. They may threaten the victim not to tell anyone of the scam.

The Morristown Police Department would like to remind everyone to protect themselves by contacting reputable contractors for needed repairs and not to consider having work done just because someone knocks on the door.

If you believe you have been a victim of a scam you may contact the Morristown Police Department by calling 423-585-2701.
