Thursday, June 21, 2012

AIKEN, SC - The Aiken Department of Public Safety is currently investigating two (2) incidents of attempted flimflams' on 06/19/2012. On each occasion the victims were approached in parking lots by a black female.

The female would ask the victim if a bag containing large rolls of cash was hers. When informed the bags were not the victims, the female subject then asked the victim if she could get into the car with her.
