The Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority of Saskatchewan (FCAA) recently received information that EM ROAD SEAL PAVING may be approaching Saskatchewan residents regarding driveway repairs and paving.
In Saskatchewan, door-to-door salespersons and companies are required to be licensed under The Direct Sellers Act. EM ROAD SEAL PAVING does not have a direct sellers licence.
If you have been contacted by EM ROAD SEAL PAVING or any unlicensed door-to-door salespersons offering to make driveway repairs, please contact the Consumer Protection Division at firstname.lastname@example.org or toll free at 1-877-880-5550.
- FCAA recommends that consumers take steps to protect themselves when entering into transactions with door-to-door salespersons, including the following:
- Check the validity of a direct seller licence number on FCAA411 (http://fcaa.gov.sk.ca/fcaa411).
- Get everything in writing and create a formal contract with clear expectations of the work to be done and the time frame that the work has to be completed in.
- Do not hand over a blank cheque.
