Homeowners in Gallia County are being warned to be aware of a tree removal scam in the area.
Gallia County Sheriff's Office said they were approached by a resident who was wrongfully charged for a tree and stump removal after a man approached her home offering his tree cutting services.
Sheriff Browning says the woman was left without complete service and charged more for the service than what he had told her.
The sheriff recommended county residents to use local companies with a good reputation. Also, those with proof of insurance, liability certificates and workers compensation insurance.
The sheriff's office is continuing to locate the man involved.
