Police in Greenbrier County want to warn you about a scam that's costing people thousands of dollars.

Rainelle and Quinwood police want you to be aware of men knocking door-to-door offering asphalt services. Some groups will take your money and not do any work, others do a substandard job and charge you thousands.

One woman in Rainelle got scammed out of more than $4,000 for a job that didn't even get completed. If someone comes to your door police want you to get detailed information about their company before giving them any money. Call 911 and get a physical descriptions of the suspects, their car and their license plate.

"If you haven't called for a service or requested an estimate, it's really good to question who ever is coming up to you. Credentials, the license permits, such as that. Make sure it's a reputable company as oppose to just someone who is traveling around. They should have markings on their vehicles, business cards proper identification," said Quinwood Police Chief Chris Bishop.

The suspects have been targeting older victims. If you have seen anything suspicious or have been a victim of a scam call your local police department

I know this was a couple of weeks ago. Is it still happening? I thought they moved on to another place. Has anyone heard anything about the guys that were trying to pick up kids? Just wondering if they caught them or are they still around?
