Fake Attorney Scamming Gas Money in the Monkey Junction Area

Truth is much better than fiction. This recent article from Star News proves the point.

“The New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office is warning that a man claiming to be an attorney and asking for gas money in the Monkey Junction area is perpetrating a scam.

In the past few days, three people in the Monkey Junction area have been approached by a man saying he forgot his wallet and needs gas money to make it to the hospital, where his wife is about to have a baby, according to a news release from Cpl. Charles Smith with the sheriff’s office.

Smith said the man vows to return in a couple hours but doesn’t.

In the most recent incident, the man is described as a white man in his 40s, about 6 feet tall, 190 pounds, Smith said. He was wearing a polo shirt and khaki pants and driving a black, extended cab Ford F-150 or F-250, Smith said. The truck has a Harley Davidson plate on the front and stickers underneath the quarter panel that say ‘FX-4′ in red and ‘OFF ROAD’ in silver, Smith said.

Anyone with information on the suspect should call detectives at 798-4260.”
