Police are urging motorists to be aware of a roadside scam involving men claiming to have broken down.
The warning follows a number of incidents in Norfolk and Suffolk this week whereby drivers have been flagged down by men from a supposedly broken down car.
Motorists are either asked for cash so they can purchase fuel, or offered jewellery in exchange for cash. The jewellery often appears to be low value – either cheap gold or polished metal – and not worth what they are asked to pay.
Officers are urging motorists to be vigilant and to report any similar incidents to police – using the 101 number for suspicious activity or 999 if you believe a crime is in progress.
