Police warn of roadside scam in Sussex
Police are warning drivers about a series of scams on roadsides around Sussex.
Sussex Police received one report this week in regards to a potential road side scam in the area of Kirdford, near Chichester, but between October 1, 2012, and February 16, this year.
However, Hampshire Constabulary received 65 reports of such incidents on highways across the county.
Sussex Police said: “They attempt to flag down motorists, often claiming they are out of fuel. They state they have no cash or have lost or left their wallet elsewhere and will offer gold jewellery or, in some cases, a watch in exchange for money.
“Of the 65 incidents reported to Hampshire police, motorists were conned out of cash on 11 occasions.
“The amounts of cash vary from £10 up to £200 on one occasion.
“If you spot anyone acting suspiciously in this way at the roadside, please call police immediately. If possible, please take down the registration number of the vehicle.”
