Scammers con drivers

Drivers are being urged not to fall victim to scammers who are operating in Cambridgeshire.

Conmen have been flagging down vehicles near petrol stations and supermarket car parks, claiming they need money for fuel.

They either offer fake jewellery or try to persuade the victim to hand over money.

An 84-year-old man handed over £20 to a man outside Tesco in Milton who claimed he needed the money for fuel and a 67-year-old woman handed over £80 to a man claiming to have run out of petrol in Littleport.
