Police alert – Roadside scam

northyorkshire police

From North Yorkshire Community Messaging:

On Mon 1st August in the Ryedale area a couple were flagged down whilst in their vehicle by a young Asia male. When they spoke with him he stated he had run out of petrol and had no money to buy any, he offered his gold ring in exchange. This is a scam – if you are approached/flagged down please contact NYP on 101 giving all details especially the car registration number.

    Thank you for this information, as a trusting individual I would have pulled over but now I am aware by reporting it if genuine they can still get help – if not then we are helping others.
