RANKIN COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Better Business Bureau is warning consumers about a paving company operating in the metro.The B.B.B. says they've had five complaints against a company that paved several driveways in a Rankin County neighborhood late last year.

The customers we talked to say the paving company is actually going through neighborhoods soliciting work. The B.B.B. says that should immediately throw up a red flag. They sometimes say they have extra material and they can cut you a deal.

Some of the residents spent $13,000.00 to get the work done. They've been unable to contact the company, because their phone is disconnected.

"You can see where the truck comes in and cars come in," said resident Doug Muenzenmay. "It's completely fully apart to the point to where that's gravel all the way through. A little further up you can see where there's grass completely growing through the inside."

"We've had several complaints about them and they're not answering their complaints," said John O'Hara with the Better Business Bureau. "I went over to their office to see if I could get in, and there's no one at the office."

The Better Business Bureau says people should always check the background of a company with the board of contractors before hiring anyone to do work at their home. Also make sure they're licensed to do the work.

The Better Business Bureau is also a good resource. They have ratings of local, reputable companies on their website, and the ones who have complaints against them as well.
