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.
