If you come across someone stopped at the side of the road, apparently out of gas, but wanting to sell you jewelry, don’t bite.
Chatham-Kent police say it’s a scam. Police received calls on the weekend regarding a grey van and a Dodge Durango stopped on the side of the road, with people apparently from Dubai trying to sell jewelry for cash, as they ran out of gas.
The calls came from Dresden and Chatham.
Police wish to remind the public not to fall prey to scams that aim at taking advantage of people’s generosity.
If a situation appears suspicious, call police immediately. Provide physical descriptions of those involved, as well as details of their vehicles, including the license plate, if possible.
