The OPP is reminding people that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
The warning comes after Police received complaints about door-to-door salespeople offering discounts on paving using re-purposed asphalt.
They claim the contractors gave only their first names, had no company logos on their vehicles and did a poor job after being paid.
Police advise residents not to assume someone with a business card is part of a legitimate company and to be cautious of anyone wishing to only deal in cash.
