Watauga County Sheriff Len Hagaman is warning of paving scammers in the county.
He says there has been a report of them in the Mabel area. The only other information he had as of Wednesday morning was they were operating out of a white truck.
The Sheriff went on to say that the workers are insisting on doing work and then claim they are owed money.
