Victim Location 55110

Total money lost $105

Type of a scam Phishing

After buying a Groupon for $105, I called the company to schedule the work and was told that the first available appointment would be 8/29. I was also informed during that call that they would contact me several days prior to the job to confirm it (weather, etc.). I called them at around 4:30pm today, because I still had not gotten a confirmation call. No one answered, so I left a message, asking them to call me back. Some man called me back this evening, demanding a credit card payment of $195, saying that my driveway is old had has many cracks, so it would cost more than the Groupon that I had already paid for. After he admitted that no one had actually even been out to inspect my driveway, I told him I would be happy to pay any overages for excess work, once the work was actually completed tomorrow, but that I was not comfortable giving him my credit card information over the phone in advance as he was requesting. He then informed me that they would not come to do the job if I didn’t give him my credit card information in advance over the phone tonight. I told him I had already paid for the Groupon and he told me to "take it up with them”. I contacted Groupon tonight and was told no refund.
