Updated: Parking Lot Scam (FWPD)

Bookmark and Share

**Updated: The Federal Way Police Department has requested that you call 911 "if the scam is still in progress and the suspect is still on the scene." **

Hello Partners,

We have received a crime tip from Safe City's "Submit An Anonymous Tip" feature on our website. A citizen submitted information about a scammer targeting elderly women at various shopping center parking lots. A male is approaching women telling them that wires are hanging out of their car. He further goes on to explain that this could accidentally set of the car's air bags, but he would be happy to fix this problem for $200. This male may have a piece of wire that he is hooking onto the underside of the car to help prove the validity of this claim.

Please be aware that this is a scam. If this happens to you or anyone you know please report this crime to the Federal Way Police Department's non-emergency phone number 253-852-2121.

There are several variations of this scam commonly seen in this area; please do not hesitate to report this type of activity to police through 9-1-1, non-emergency 253-852-2121 or on-line:
