Deputies warn of possible paving scam targeting elderly

Press Release from Box Elder County Sheriff's office

BOX ELDER COUNTY — County deputies are trying to track down a family they say may be targeting the elderly in a cement paving scam.

“They want to seal coat the driveway, or whatever, and it seems like they are hitting up the elderly population,” said Chief Deputy Dale Ward. “There’s a possibility they are charging too much money for doing this. They are also working outside the parameters of any business licenses.”

Ward said they want to catch up with the family and ask them a few questions.

“It is operating under the name of International Seal Coating and Paving. The main spokesperson for the company identifies himself as Jim Costello,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement.

They ask anyone approached by the family to call the Sheriff’s office immediately.
