Police are warning senior citizens living in the western end of Grayson County about flim-flammers working in their area.
Chief Deputy Mike Hash of the Grayson County Sheriff’s Department said a man and woman traveling in a white van recently stopped at homes in the Mouth of Wilson area.
They told homeowners that they wanted to cut some brush and put flags in their yards.
Hash said one elderly woman paid $3,500 to get her driveway topped.
Hash urges any Grayson County resident if they are contacted by anyone offering to do yard work, pave or top their driveway to contact the sheriff’s office.
“They target senior citizens and while they keep the homeowner occupied at their front door, the second person enters the home in search of valuables or money,” Hash said.
Hash said anyone who is approached by a stranger should call the sheriff’s office, write down the license number of the vehicle they are traveling in and get a description of the people.
They can call the sheriff’s office at 773-3241.
