Motorists warned of roadside petrol scam
This was sent to me to post to others.

Surrey Police is warning motorists to remain vigilant following a recent spate of people being conned into giving money for petrolwith the suspects pretending to be drivers in need.


The first incident was reported to police on Thursday, 6 November. The victim, a 64-year-old man from Walton-on-Thames, had been driving along Lammas Lane, Esher, at around 2.15pm when he was flagged down by the suspects stating they needed cash for fuel. He gave them £20 cash in exchange for three gold rings and the suspects promised to repay the money and gave the victim a business card.


The rings have since been established as being worthless and the business card fake.


The two suspects have been described as being smartly dressed, dark skinned, possibly of Arabic origin, having a large build and being around 40 to 50 years old. Their vehicle is believed to be a black Mercedes saloon car.


Two further incidents took place on Saturday, 15 November between 9.45am and 10.10am.


One victim, a 54-year-old man from Byfleet, stopped to assist a man who flagged him down at the slip road of the A3 by the Cobham roundabout. The suspect said he needed petrol to get to Glasgow and offered the victim some rings.

The victim declined the rings but drove to the Sainsbury's petrol station in Cobham whilst the suspect followed in his car. It is believed that their were four passengers in his vehicle.

Having arrived at the petrol station the victim handed the suspect £240 for fuel. The suspect took the victim's mobile phone number, gave him a business card which was later established as fake, and promised to contact the victim to repay the money when he reached his destination. He then got back in his vehicle and left the scene.

The suspect has been described as having an Asian appearance, being around 40 to 45 years old and having a stocky build. He had a moustache and short, dark well-kept hair. He was wearing a white shirt and dark coloured trousers and tie. It is possible that he understood Arabic.

The other men in the suspect's car, which is believed to be a Mitsubishi, have been described as being of a smart appearance and of similar ethnicity to the suspect
