Scammers falsely blame unsuspecting drivers for their “broken wing mirrors” and demand large sums of money.

Police have warned of the scam costing innocent drivers cash.

The scammers bang on the side of passing cars to make it sound like there has been a collision.

They then proceed to catch up with their targets and then demand cash from them.

North Wales Police described an incident where the driver of a Range Rover was the victim of fraud in Pensarn, Conwy.

A spokesman for the force said: “The victim will be riding and will then hear a bang on the passenger side of their vehicle.

“A car will then pull up after them, stop them and then claim the victim just hit their driver’s wing mirror and demand cash for repairs.

“What actually happens is the scammer is parked on the side of the road and intentionally attacks the victim’s car as it drives past. The damaged mirror is fake and not caused by the victim.”

Anyone with information should contact the police.
