Paving scammers make off with $4,000


LYNDHURST, NJ – On Tuesday, June 8, at approximately 11am, an elderly resident fell victim to a paving scam by the suspects in the pictures provided above. The resident, who had a planned driveway resurfacing with a local reputable company, was approached by these men who stated that they were ready to begin the work on the driveway.

The suspect wearing the dark colored shirt and gold chain identified himself as “Marion Johnson”, and charged the victim over $4,000. The “work” that they performed also ruined the driveway.
