Scam artist paver with Wilmington ties at it again


RALEIGH, NC (WWAY) -- A driveway paver who got his start in Wilmington scamming consumers is back at it again, the NC Attorney General's office says. Tommy Clack has recently been reported paving driveways for older homeowners in Hope Mills, Zebulon, Greensboro and Nashville.

According to reports from consumers, Clack is doing business as Ed Clark, Tommy Clark, Ed Crabtree and Crabtree Paving. He tells homeowners that he has been doing paving jobs in their neighborhood, has paving materials left over and can pave or repave their driveway for a discounted price. If the homeowner agrees, he and his crew quickly lay asphalt and then demand a high price.

In June 2010, the AG's office won a court order permanently banning Clack from offering or providing driveway paving services in North Carolina. The AG's office says he continues to violate that order and has twice been cited for contempt of court. Last month, a Wake County judge cited Clack for criminal contempt and entered an order for his arrest. Clack also faces criminal charges in other states for similar schemes.

If you encounter Clack offering driveway paving services in North Carolina or trying to cash homeowners’ checks, please contact local law enforcement as well as the Attorney General's Consumer Protection Division at (877) 5-NO-SCAM or (919) 716-6000.

This guy use to have a

This guy use to have a vacation place at white lake where I had one, he advertised his buisness there but used horry county sc as the place it was out of at the time. No wonder he had like 3 hummers and his wife a almost 8 carate dimond ring. Everyone called them king and queen of the campground. People said back then they were scammers. They had a house everywhere imaginable and they sure did brag about everything they had. He deserves what he gets. They have geez 6 kids that I can remember, if not more. It's a shame..

White Lake

And you were probably one of those people that went to many of his cookouts he had there and feasted on a steak, they all talked about him behind his back but they sure would stop and enjoy his generosity.......

Well apparent

It is well apparent the previous punishments have not done the job for this guy. He needs to spend sometime in jail and have all his construction equipment seized, sold and the money given to his victims.

You are so right guesty! Why

You are so right guesty! Why has this man not been in jail?
