Wednesday, June 19, 2019 Brazen Scam Being Perpetrated on The Elderly-***$500 REWARD OFFERED*** On June 17, a couple in their 80’s from Dewey, Arizona, were flagged down near the Wal Mart on Glassford Hill in Prescott Valley, by a suspect in a newer model white Chevy pickup, possibly 4 doors. The man told them he noticed some damage to their car and asked if they would like it fixed. The suspect claimed a connection with the local Honda dealer. They said they lived in Dewey, and he asked how far away that was then agreed to follow them home. Once at the house, a second man approached and carried their groceries into the house for them. After that, the two men “worked” on their car for a short period of time and replaced two body panel clips. The suspects then invited themselves into the house and told the couple the repair would cost $5500 cash and would follow them to their bank to get the money. The female victim balked at the demand, went into a bedroom and closed the door. She called the Honda dealership to determine if the men were legitimate. While she was on the phone, one of the suspects barged in and asked her who she was talking to. She told him that she was not going to access her bank account on the computer in the room with him there, so he left. Eventually, the suspects negotiated the repair cost down to $800 dollars. The victim remained on the phone until the two men finally left without getting any money. Since the first report, three additional victims have been identified. The couple disagreed on whether the suspects were Caucasian or light-skinned Hispanics, but they were both in their 40’s and the driver was “huskier” than the passenger and had a small mustache. Both were clean-cut, “tidy,” about 6’ tall with brown hair. Help us stop them! If you recognize this vehicle or these suspects call us immediately!
