These people are called Irish Travelers...they are from North Augusta, SC. Every year early Spring they travel to scam people on roofs, driveways, and other odd jobs. They sometimes can be dangerous and usually target the elderly....I have dealt with them and researched them. They wrongly took money from me, which I got back, and tried the next year to do the same to an elderly man that I knew. I approached them and they packed up and left him a free driveway! People should be really careful of them, they go to great lengths to cover their tracks. All of their information seems legit (car tags, business lic, etc) until you dig for the right information with their social security numbers. Google them you will be amazed, there have been specials on them on such shows as 48 hours. There is more to these people than just complaining about a driveway or roof...they can be dangerous.

Warning people about fraudulent criminals that prey upon honest taxpayers is one of the assets of this forum. I understand why you dislike it, you appear to be one of those nonstandard English speaking criminals. You have exposed yourself, keep it up. The more we know about you the more ammo we have against you and your kind. Your post does not make you appear to be very bright, you might want to go to school to become more proficient in the English language, and then you will not have to use fraud to live.

You are correct, thanks for warning others. I had an experience with one that wanted to paint a roof on a barn on one of my farms. He was such a cheerful character until I asked for references. I told him I was a cousin to the sheriff and needed his SS and driver's license #'s so my cousin could check his background. He said he would be back in touch, never heard from the criminal again.

Anyone who would advertise for a paving company and use N. Augusta, SC as an address is not business savvy. That is the address of all the gypsy con artist.

You are not fooling anyone, if you would accept no for an answer the first ten times you are told no, people wouldn't be in this situation. Too bad your paving skills come nowhere close to your selling skills. I always said if rumnies would put as much attention to the workmanship and not being a overbearing asshole, they would have a business that would take care of them instead of having to knock a door everyday. I know, i did it.
