Banned Paver Reportedly Still Approaching Older Home Owners in NC

Driveway paver Tommy Edward Clack, also doing business as Ed Clark, Tommy Clark, Ed Crabtree and Crabtree Paving, continues to approach older North Carolina home owners with claims that he has been doing paving jobs for others in the neighborhood, has asphalt material left over, and can pave or repave the home owner's driveway for a highly discounted price. If the home owner agrees to let him do the work, he and his crew quickly lay asphalt and then demand a high price for the work. In June 2010, Mr. Clack was permanently banned by the court from offering or providing driveway paving services in North Carolina. Since that time, he has been cited for contempt court twice for violating the court's order. On April 20, 2012, Wake County Superior Court Judge Paul Ridgeway cited Clack for criminal contempt after receiving evidence that he had done driveway paving jobs for home owners in Knightdale, NC the month before. Judge Ridgeway also entered an order for Clack's arrest.

According to prosecutors in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, two weeks ago Clack had a court date there to answer criminal charges related to his driveway paving activities in that area. Those prosecutors report that Clack requested and received additional time from the Maryland court so that he could raise the money needed to repay Maryland home owners. Since that time, the Consumer Protection Division of the North Carolina Attorney General's Office has received reports of Clack performing driveway paving for older home owners in Zebulon, Greensboro and Nashville, North Carolina. The Greensboro home owner reports that Clack was at his home last Monday.

A photo of Clack appears below. He no longer sports the facial hair.& If you should encounter Mr. Clack offering driveway paving services in North Carolina or trying to cash home owners' checks, please contact local law enforcement as well as Investigator Linda Matthews of the North Carolina Attorney General's Office, tel. 919-716-6000. Thank you.
