A Wichita business has become the victim of a scam.
Abe’s Tree Service was broken into last month. The thief didn’t take any equipment, only the company’s business cards.
Now, police say a man claiming to work for Abe's is going door to door, showing the cards and promising to do yard work. He takes payment in advance and never comes back to do the work.
Abe’s Tree Service owner Jesse Corona says this scam is making his business look bad. He says his company does not go door to door, looking for service. Most of the time his customers find out about him from the phone book.
Police say you should do business with a known company and if you have questions, call the company.
Corona says you should never pay up front. He says wait until the work is done, make sure you are happy with it and go from there.
