BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Police in Battle Creek are warning residents of a driveway sealing scam.

The incidents are taking place in areas where road work is being done.

Police say two men in an older red pickup have been approaching homeowners, offering to seal or resurface their driveways. They say the men attempt to charge $3,500 after the resurfacing.

If homeowners balk at the price they will take any amount of money.

Investigators say that the men have also promised to return the next day but never do.

Officers say this isn't a new scam, it has happened in the area before.

Investigators say that a woman was taken for $1,800 in the scam Monday.
