Home improvement scam in Elkhart County


The Elkhart County Sheriff's Department is investigating a series home improvement scams, and want your help with the case. 

They say several people claimed to be workers with a tree cutting service called Northcutt Tree Service.  The scammers then overcharged people for "little to no work being done."

Northcutt Tree Service is a legitimate company, but the scammers have been using a variant of the name: North-cut Tree & Shrub.

Suspects are currently in custody on unrelated charges, but police are continuing to investigate.  They want to know if anyone else has been a victim.  If you think you may have been a victim, you are asked to call the Elkhart County Sheriff's Department at 574-533-4151, or your local law enforcement agency.
