The national gendarmerie launches a call for witnesses after a series of scams in Vaucluse

Has someone tried to scam you by asking you to withdraw cash from an ATM? This is the question asked by the national gendarmerie in a call for witnesses. Saturday June 15, the Bollène gendarmes arrested several people of Irish origin suspected of fraud in the region, or even on national territory.

Their method is well-oiled: several people approach motorists at a rest area, highway exits, or on the side of the road and indicate that they no longer have cash to travel to their homes in Ireland. They claim a vehicle breakdown or another reason and then ask their victim to withdraw a large sum of money and offer reimbursement by bank transfer. This transfer is made in front of the victim but with a fictitious application. Then, the suspects follow the victim to the ATM and are given the amount. Subsequently, the victims realize that there has been no transfer to their account and file a complaint.

A call for witnesses is therefore launched by the national gendarmerie in order to find out if people have been victims of such acts or even attempts. If this is the case, you can contact Bollène gendarmerie services at 04.90.30.10.28.
