The Dawson Creek RCMP would like to warn the public about a group of individuals who are scamming homeowners by offering to pave residential driveways.

These individuals typically prepare the ground, start the job, accept payment for the job but they never complete it.

The Dawson Creek RCMP has received several reports of such scams and is urging homeowners to be cautious when dealing with such individuals.

While the scammers have used the name of a legitimate paving company, Eco Line Paving, the RCMP has confirmed that this company does not operate in British Columbia and it is believed that the suspects are impersonating employees of the company to deceive homeowners and gain their trust.

The RCMP is asking anyone who has been approached by individuals claiming to work for Eco Line Paving and offering to pave their driveway to be wary and to report any suspicious behaviour.

Homeowners should always verify the legitimacy of the company and its employees before agreeing to any work. Anyone with information about this scam or similar ones is asked to contact the Dawson Creek RCMP detachment at (250) 784-3700.
