Public Advisory - Vehicle Repair Scam

The Winnipeg Police Service has been made aware of a suspicious male driver flagging over female drivers. Once the female comes to a stop, they are approached by the male who suggests that there is a mechanical problem with their vehicle which needs to be addressed right away. The male advises that he is a mechanic, has parts on hand and can repair the vehicle on the spot for a sum of money.

Some drivers who declined assistance from this male followed up with a certified mechanic and learned that there were no mechanical concerns with their vehicle.

Members of the public are encouraged to be cautious if encountering anyone not known to you trying to get your attention or requesting to pull you over while driving. If you feel you require mechanical assistance, contact a towing company or mechanical shop.

For further information contact either:
   Constable Rob Carver, Public Information Officer
   Constable Jay Murray, Public Information Officer
   Constable Tammy Skrabek, Public Information Officer
   Kelly Dehn, Manager of Public Affairs
