On June 22nd, 2021 the Port Hope Police were alerted to two males located at the Pineview Plaza on Toronto Road, Port Hope, ON that were approaching people offering to sell a gold ring for gas. The community member who reported this to police felt the men were attempting to take advantage of him, and declined purchasing the gold ring but offered a jerry can full of gas. The two men refused the assistance and pulled away from the citizen offering gas.
The two males were driving a newer model SUV, both were well dressed. The males were of Indian decent with accents.
Clearly these men just wanted cash not gas. Please be aware of this type of scam.
Thank you to the community for calling police.
