If someone approaches you and offers to repair your driveway on the cheap, it may be a scam.

Attorney General Lisa Madigan is warning homeowners to be aware of con artists who go door-to-door offering to do work for a small fee.

Often, they claim to have asphalt left over from a previous job.

After finishing the work, the scammer presents the homeowner with an expensive bill and demands payment.
