The Chatham-Kent Police Service have issued a ‘roadside scam warning’ after some alleged incidents outside of Dresden.

Police officials allege last Saturday, police received three calls from motorists in the Chatham and Dresden area regarding a grey van and Dodge Durango stopped on the side of the road with people apparently from Dubai trying to sell jewelry for cash as they ran out of gas.

“We would like to remind citizens not to fall prey of scams that aim at taking advantage of people‚Äôs generosity,” police officials said in a media release.

“If the situation appears suspicious, use caution and call police immediately with physical descriptors of those involved along with a description of their vehicle including the license plate, if possible.”
