UHP warning of scam happening on Utah roadways
SALT LAKE CITY — Officials with the Utah Highway Patrol are warning drivers about a scam happening out on the roadways.
“We’ve had some people that are, like, flagging cars down, and then, when they stop to help, they kind of tell them that their car is broke down and they’ll give them this gold if they can get some money. And so, it’s people trying to scam people as they’re stopping to help someone,” said Sgt. Cameron Roden with the Utah Highway Patrol.
Roden said the instances have happened sporadically — it “happens a little bit,” then dies down, then picks back up again. He added that from the ones he’s seen, it’s happened approximately 10 times.
More information is expected to be released in the coming days.
