False Police Officer Scam

False Police Officer Scam.

A gentleman was walking along the side of a road carrying a haversack  -  a car pulled up beside him and asked could they have a look in his bag. They showed what seemed to be official ID and were wearing uniforms but the car was not a police car. The gentleman handed the bag over and they continued to look in it, one of them took his wallet with about 50 euros in and fortunately nothing else. They got back in the car and raced off before he realised they had taken his money. Police unmarked cars can be recognised by lights both front and rear that give motorists instructions ie. STOP – be very aware of this scam.
