PSP warns scammers try to deal, negotiated in cash

It was through social networks that the Public Security Police spread an alert, related to a scam scheme that is based on an alleged traffic accident.

According to the authority, the action of fraudsters begins on the roads, when they select victims and chase them by car, honking insistently with the aim of getting drivers to stop the car. When people stop, scammers approach people accusing them of having caused damage to the vehicle (due to distraction or during manoeuvres).

The scammers initially try to reach an agreement, which involves paying the damages in cash, avoiding the intervention of the authorities as much as possible.

In this follow-up, the PSP alerts are:

  • do not agreewith someone who asks for money. If in doubt, call the authorities;
  • Always take note of the vehicle data (registration, make, model and color) in which the suspect(s) is transported (when in situations of fraud, the suspects leave the place when it is mentioned that they are leaving call the police;
  • Report whenever you are a victim of fraud or attempted fraud”.
