Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office alerts residents of scam

The Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office alerted residents of two men offering pressure-washing services.

The Sheriff’s Office posted the scam alert on its Facebook page Monday morning. The alert said two white men in a white van have approached homeowners and offered to pressure wash their homes.

When one man is talking to the homeowner, the other man enters the home looking for items to steal, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

The most recent incident took place on Tombfield Road.

Deputies ask anyone who may encounter the men to get the license number on the vehicle and to not allow them inside. Deputies also say the men may be using different vehicles.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
