Hamblen County Sheriff’s Department warns of roofing scam


MORRISTOWN (WATE) – Hamblen County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents of a scam involving subjects representing themselves as a paving and roofing company.

The Sheriff’s Office said they have had several reports that the individuals claim they have leftover asphalt materials and they can seal a driveway or patch a roof for a discounted rate.

Once the work is complete, deputies say they demand a higher price.

Deputies say the scammers are going door-to-door targeting the elderly and most vulnerable.

Anyone with information or who sees suspicious activity is asked to call the Hamblen County Sheriff’s Office at (423) 585-2701.
