Orchard Park police are warning of a scam that may be making its way around the Southtowns.
The department wrote on its Facebook page that it has received tips from neighboring police departments about individuals going door-to-door, offering to get rid of excess blacktop on the cheap.
Then, after completing a partial job, they demand more money to finish.
Police said the scammers may be in the area or headed to the area. They remind all that the Better Business Bureau, customer references, and on-line searches can assist in choosing a trustworthy contractor.
