Peel Regional Police say a 20-year-old man is wanted after an alleged door-to-door driveway repair scam cost victims thousands of dollars.

Police said the scam occurred from June and August, when multiple victims say they had agreed to use the services of a man who falsely identified himself as belonging to a legitimate driveway repair company.

Victims told investigators that the man would create a sense of urgency and ask them to pay in advance for the services.

In some situations, he would begin the work but would not finish it, police said.

In other instances, the work would not start at all and communication would go radio silent.
