Anyone heard of this scam? Magic parts warehouse...


Recommended Posts

I was sat with my brother in his somewhat uncommon but not particularly desirable/valuable US SUV at a KFC and a guy appeared from a van telling us he had loads of parts for it and if we needed anything for it he had a warehouse nearby that we could go to. It seemed dodgy of course and a it was clear he didn't even know what the car was, but what was the end game for this guy? The car wasn't worth stealing as it's clearly a cheapo project - hardly a matching numbers Mustang. Was he going to sell us generic carpets etc. for it?

We said we were busy and could he give us his number and he stormed off. it was weird.

Traveller?

You end up at the back of a deserted industrial estate where a bunch of his mates then relieve you of your keys. phone and wallet.

I figured about the same end result, albeit with an interesting approach.
