[ARCHIVED] House Address Number Curb Painting Solicitation is Prohibited

Have you had people knock on your door demanding money for a curb-painting service? The curb-painting scam involves people you didn’t hire that show up, paint your house number on the curb and demand payment. Some of the impostors will suggest or outright claim they are employed by the City, complete with official-looking notices. Don’t let them pressure you into paying! If you did not hire or approve for anyone to paint your curb, don’t give them payment or donations.

The City of Rancho Palos Verdes has occasionally received reports of homeowners being solicited for the painting of house address numbers on street curbs. Please be aware that, since November 20, 2001, this activity has been prohibited by City Council policy direction. The refreshing of house address numbers painted on street curbs is included within the scope of the City’s annual residential street rehabilitation project, using a City contractor and at no cost to individual homeowners. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Public Works Department at (310) 544-5252 or If someone approaches you and asks for money after painting your curb, explain to them why you are declining payment and report possible scammers to the Lomita Sheriff's Station at (310) 539-1661. Thank you!
