WILLOW GROVE, PA — The Upper Moreland Township Police say they have recently taken several reports of elderly residents falling victim to a driveway sealing scam.

Authorities state that three perpetrators, claiming to be from a legitimate local paving company, coated the resident’s driveway in an oily substance and performed subpar concrete work. The residents were scammed out of $1500.

The suspects are described as:

  • “Tony”, a white male, 50’s, approximately 5’9″ and facial hair
  • A very thin white male, 30’s, approximately 6′ tall
  • A white male, 20’s, approximately 5’8″, wearing many gold chains
