Police Department Sends Message To The Public To Alert Of Frightening New Scam

February 02, 2018

A police department in Fishers, Indiana, has recently come forward with a new scam that has been circulating, in hopes of bringing awareness to all motorists. If you own a car and drive frequently, do you have your license plate number memorized? If not, you might want to learn it.

Having this number could end up saving your life. They recently received a call from a driver that sent chills down their spine. As one woman was driving down the road, a car pulled up beside her. The passengers of the car were two men and they attempted to get her attention.

Once she looked their way, they notified her that her license plate had fallen off of her vehicle. For proof, they held it up a phony plate to show her. Thankfully, she had her plate number memorized and immediately realized that she was in a potentially dangerous situation.

She refused to pull over and continued driving. She immediately notified the local police of the frightening incident. Since this occurrence, police have been urging people to learn their plate number in the event they find themselves in a similar situation.


This day and age, one can never be too prepared. If you or someone you know has been in a similar situation, contact your local authorities as soon as possible.
