Police warning about scam on road between Steeton and Shipley

Police are warning drivers who are traveling along the roads between Steeton and Shipley to be on their guard for a possible scam.

Two calls have been made to police saying someone is flagging them down saying he is out of fuel and offering them a gold ring in exchange for cash. The ring is later found to be fake.

West Yorkshire Police are asking people to contact them immediately if someone flags them down with this scam.

Three Ways of dealing with this.
1) Don't stop.
2) Stop listen to them, say "Tough", drive off.
3) Stop listen Say, "O.K. mate jump in; I will run you to the nearest petrol station"

Yes it could be? But I don't think they would get in; for fear you would drive them to the nearest Police station.
