    Hit and Run Scam

    Just got a call from a random number claiming their vehicle was hit and a note was left with my information (name, phone number, maybe more) that also apologized for the accident. They went on to say the police in the city I attend school at (different state than my home, where the alleged accident occured) were alerted and then named my school. How could they have known this information?

    Be aware of these types of phone scams. They wanted to forward me an estimate and have me meet them to exchange cash for the accident.

    That is a weird story about hit and runs. Did you get his phone number? I would go to the nearest police station and talk to a cop.

    There is another version of that scam where they tell you your car will be impounded by the cops but they will do the favor if you give the $50 to pay a tow truck drive to take the car to ABC Mall and leave it in the Walmart parking lot so you don't have to pay the impound fee. They really just want your credit card info.
