Considering this week's weather forecast, this is a very timely warning.

We consider these warnings a Public Service Announcement.


It will be snowing in the US again soon and I wanted to warn you of this latest scam.
You should be on the lookout for this pair in case they appear in your area.
They showed up offering to shovel snow from my friend's driveway for $10. Not ten
minutes into the job they were at his door complaining about being cold.
They said they wanted to come in to his house and get warm for a while.

Well, three hours later, they ended up leaving without finishing the
driveway. He didn't get anything done around the house because he was afraid
to take his eyes off of them. He's just glad his wife wasn't at home to see him
taken in by this 'scam'. He'd never hear the end of it.

Don't let this happen to you!

Fortunately, he took their picture before they left. If these two appear on
your doorstep, don't say you weren't warned!
