Bitumen Driveway Scam in Rural Areas

Posted on: 13.03.2017

Please be aware that there may be potential scammers operating in the Wollondilly Shire offering spray-sealing/driveway work to residents. In the past, residents have been approached by workmen who offer to repair driveways for a cheap price.  The catch is that you must commit straight away.

The scam involves the workers doing a substandard job and then demanding further payment to fix the work.  Please make sure that any company you use to carry out work on your property is a reputable, licenced company.

While these activities can border on being illegal, it is usually a civil matter as a service has been provided, despite the quality of work.
