SCAM Alert: People selling drinks on the road

Postby neilsingh100 » July 29th, 2016, 5:26 pm

There is a scam where persons selling drinks on the side of the road will bump into your car when slowing down by a traffic light and say you hit them or damage their water cooler. They will say the owner of the water cooler is a police and ask you to call him to work out a settlement. The person on the phone will sound legit and will give a fake name and police badge number then try to extort money from you. The person impersonating a police officer will constantly call you and make threats unless you pay them.

If this happens to you do not give them your phone number and go straight to the nearest police station and make a report.

Piarco intersection turnoff to websource they pulling this too. Had consciously dodged the cart knowing well the dimensions of my car so when they come tappin to say i bounce the cart i just laugh and roll back up my window. After they try them tactics they askin me to buy a water or something. Talk about customer service.
