The roofing company is legitimate, but the person or persons handing out the flyers are not affiliated with the company.

The sheriff’s department said the scammers who are handing out flyers will agree to a job and take a payment without doing any work.

Although they did not release an exact amount, the sheriff’s department said there has been a substantial monetary loss in the community because of the scam.

Anyone who has received one of these flyers is asked to call Deputy Schultz or Investigator Andy Walters at (580) 338-4000 as they continue their investigation.

We are currently seeking information regarding any businesses that have received a flyer similar to the one pictured...
