Home improvement fraud
Monday, May 14, 2012

On April 28, 2012, an Elkhart County Sheriff's Department deputy responded to an elderly female's residence near Nappanee in reference to Home Improvement fraud. Two subjects, posing as good Samaritans, stopped by her home and stated that they noticed part of her roof coming loose. After agreeing to allow them to make this repair, the subjects advised her that she needed to pay them over $5,700 for the repairs. After telling them that she did not have the money to pay for the repairs, which were not needed or even completed by the men, they later returned and stated that they did more work on the roof and gave her a 2nd bill for $2,300. After agreeing to a reduced amount, the men left in a gray pickup truck and were described as a younger and older male.

If you have information concerning this case or information on these subjects, please contact the Elkhart County Sheriff's Department at 574-533-4151.
