Police: Scammers staging traffic accidents; attempt to settle with victims

posted by Caroline J. Cook - 

March 22, 2018 -  Virginia Tech Police say they have been made aware of a scan that has been reported off campus. 

They say the scam involves people, usually working in pairs, "staging" traffic accidents where they tell victims that they either hit the scammer's vehicle or the scammer. 

The scammers then attempt to coerce the victim into not contacting the police or insurance companies, but that the victim should pay them money to "cover" the damages.
