MDPS Investigators served an arrest warrant on offender who allegedly scammed a 78 year old woman
    Arrestee: Richard P. Farrant, 52 yrs old.   Last known address: Riverview Road, Taylorsville NC   Date of Arrest: May 29, 2014   Location of arrest: Winding Creek community of Morganton NC   Charge:  Obtaining Property by False Pretense (Buncombe County warrant).  Additional charges pending further investigation.       On May 28 2014, Morganton Public Safety investigations was notified of a possible home improvement scam in progress in the Winding Creek community of Morganton NC.  An unknown female had been calling senior citizen homeowners in the area, offering free in-home energy efficiency assessments.  Once the offer was accepted, the arrestee, Richard Farrant, would call the homeowner to confirm the appointment.  On one occasion, a male identifying himself as Farrant threatened to bill one elderly female for wasting his time when she was unable to keep her appointment.  The frightened female called a neighbor, who suspected a scam was in progress and notified MDPS.  Further investigation discovered Farrant had solicited at least four senior citizen homes in the Winding Creek community alone, and at least another two in Morganton.  Investigators discovered a Buncombe County felony warrant for Farrant’s arrest, and also learned he has been the focus of multiple similar complaints in other jurisdictions.  Farrant arrived for an appointment with another potential victim the morning of May 29, 2014, but MDPS investigators M.A. McNeely and J.R. Brown were waiting there to take him into custody.                               Morganton Public Safety strongly urges citizens to be very suspicious of anyone making unsolicited offers for free services.       Be particularly wary of:   - callers asking the homeowner to give out personal information, bank or financial information, number of people living in the home, email or physical addresses or phone numbers or allow the stranger into the home;   -callers who fail or refuse to identify themselves, their business name or a return phone number;   -callers who claim to be affiliated with any branch of agency of local, state or federal government;   -callers who threaten to impose a bill or fine on behalf of a government agency;   -callers who attempt to bill you for work not yet completed;   -calls from unknown, unidentified or blocked numbers;   -calls claiming the homeowner has won anything, especially if no contest has been entered.   Also, be very suspicious of an unsolicited visit to your home where the visitor tries to pressure into signing any type of contract, claims the offer is time-limited, asks for up-front money to start a job, or asks for your personal debit/credit card to make job-related purchases.  If a person is in any way suspicious of a business, inquire at the local city hall for a business permit, or call local law enforcement before signing anything.
