Why would people just hand someone money to do a job that they had not even completed or any contract? People really are not bright.

I had a run in with these guys. The driver turned around in my driveway even though I have signs to NOT turn. When I yelled at him he gave me a dirty look and went down the street and asked something of a neighbor. I got a license# because he was acting strangely followed by an over the top obsequious apology from the street as he rolled slowly and intimidatingly by my house and went down the street and asked something of a neighbor. I got a license # because he was acting strangely and it didn't seem right. A hour or so later the driver now had a passenger who exited the passenger side of the truck and approached my door. I intercepted him in the drive and he said that he represented himself as Twin City asphalt maintainance (sic). I interrupted him and said to get the h*ll out of my driveway. I kept the license # just in case...Later the next day I read this notice from the Police. The vehicle was a match to the description in the paper. I called the Police to inform them that I may have the Guys. I gave them the license # and it was run. It came out to be a White Ford 350. No signage on the door of the truck. Good luck I hope they catch them!!!
That will teach him to turn in MY driveway:).
