Basingstoke Gazette: Conmen target north Hampshire motorists Conmen target north Hampshire motorists

SCAM artists are flagging down motorists for cash in north Hampshire.

A woman was flagged down on the junction 6 slip road of the M3 at Basingstoke, at 11am on Tuesday, by a man asking for money for fuel. She stopped and spoke to him, and he tried to sell her a ring and asked for money.

Around the same time yesterday, a man was flagged down on the slip road of the A303 near Picket Twenty, Andover. The man who flagged him down asked for money for fuel.

Earlier this month a woman was conned into handing cash over on the slip road for the M3 at Hook.

Police said gold items that are offered for sale by the conmen are often highly-polished copper.

Anyone who wishes to report such incidents can call 101.
