Door to door scammer on Wellsbury Way in Midtown Crimes & Incidents, posted by Rajesh Kumar, a member of the JLS Middle School community, on Sep 28, 2007 at 10:38 pm
This morning, the folks on Wellsbury Way in midtown Palo Alto got hit by a scammer. A middle-aged man claimed to live on such and such address on Wellsbury way and claimed to have locked himself out of his car with is wallet in his car. Further, he claimed to be unable to contact his wife and that AAA would not pry open his car door unless he paid them. He collected $20 from some one I know and perhaps some money from other neighbors. When a woman in the neighborhood got suspicious, he ran away.
Beware - he might strike another Palo Alto neighborhood soon.
