Anyone know of the gypsies running and scams locally so far this year? I read that these days they start up asphalt companies and, if they come back at all, will lay down a mixture of mostly dirt that ends up crumbling

I have known people in the central New York and North Country who have been scammed by these "pavers". You are correct. They buy bulk loads of asphalt and mix in topsoil,peat, and crushed gypsum to add bulk. Another I have heard of is they do the work when your not home. They will lay down a bed of sand and then spray hot tar onto it. It looks pretty good at first but does not hold up for dung.

I also have heard of an older gentleman who succumbed to the scheme of a "traveler" that involved completing an addition on his house, but the guys fled after partially completing it after installing faulty wiring

No idea. I only know of the asphalt scam. Another common one with the asphalt is they will use real asphalt but grade the ground with a hump.Then when the spreader lays it down it looks nice and thick at the edges.However everything but the edge is paper thin.They will fool you into thinking the "crown" is to cause water to run off. Makes sense right?Only thing is that's the wrong way to do it. Months later you got a dirt driveway with asphalt curbs.

Some of the schemes are ingenious as much as I hate to say it. I think there are a lot of us who could actually fall prey to something like that.

My neighbor hired these guys to do his driveway and they were the worst looking bunch you have ever seen it was like they went to a homeless shelter and hired 10 people to do his driveway. Also 3 months later his edges of the driveway were cracking and sinking in and they told him, "we can't do nuffin bout your ground bein soft". One more thing wasn't a single white guy on their crew of around 15 guys.

Scams always are ingenious otherwise they don't work. What I find interesting is that a group of people with such high rates of illiteracy and educations that end in grammar school come up with them. The stories I here from my family members in Germany are unbelievable. Trust me the gypsies here got nothing on the ones in the Old-Countries.

Over the winter I saw a program where this gypsy family would have a full men's suit up on a coat hanger with something like 8 bells in various places, and the children were trained to be able to pick every pocket on it without ringing a single bell
