Police warn of paving scam

Dufferin OPP are warning residents to be aware of a paving scam that is taking place in Dufferin County.   

“A paving company identified as Q-Line Paving has been connected to numerous complaints to police about paving scams,” the detachment said in a release. “Dufferin OPP had several calls about a paving company that goes by the name Q-line. They are offering low cost paving as they have a ‘surplus’ of asphalt from road work. They are giving estimates and then completing the jobs without paperwork or providing written quotes. Q-line then paves more than the agreed area and charges substantially more than the quote.”

The detachment said that while the work was done properly, the homeowner’s agreed-upon price was $10,500 but was later charged $16,000 after the job was done.
