Road scams surface

OPM Public Affairs
People can run into bad luck while they
are on the road, and there are legitimate
candidates for charity. Unfortunately,
others are simply up to no good.
“With the onset of summer we again
expect to see cases of people trying to de-
fraud Americans on the road in Europe,”
said Leslie Shavers, law enforcement pro-
gram ofﬁcer at the U.S. Army Europe Of-
ﬁce of the Provost Marshal.
One scam involves someone in a vehicle
ﬂagging down other vehicles to get money
by falsely claiming that they need help.
This kind of approach often happens
close to a barracks gate, at a highway rest
stop or on a road outside of town where
you have to drive slowly.
Sometimes the scammers offer you
gold jewelry as collateral so they can pay
you back later. Unfortunately the rings
and chains turn out to be worthless brass
A second scam involves someone
claiming to have run out of money at a
trade fair and offering to sell you expen-
sive goods, often jackets or coats, at a huge
discount so they can buy gas to get home.
However, the fancy brand name articles
turn out to be cheap fakes.
