*Return of the Parking Lot Scammer(s)*
From time to time we post about a scammer, speaking with what seems to be an island accent, who will disable a target's car and then "fix" the car with the expectation of some money. One of our contacts in Virginia Highland recently received this account from an encounter with such an individual along with some pictures (posted below) of the person allegedly operating this scam.
We believe several different scammers are working the area using this and similar tactics. Should you become a targeted victim call 911 immediately, and then call Midtown Tire (404-874-1112) - they will come fix the car for free. Don't pay the scammer.
