Scams usually come in the form of phone calls or emails.
This time the scam walked right up to an elderly woman.
Several men claimed to be employees of Edward’s Construction when they approached her and offered to pave her driveway, though State College police did not reveal the price or how much she paid the men.
Police said in a release, “There is no known company in the area providing this service under the name provided.”
Police said Centre County residents should be aware of any related scam attempts.
