Woman pulled over by fake police officers in Fife
The 36-year-old was stopped driving along Old Perth Road on Thursday.
A woman was pulled over by two men impersonating police officers in Fife.
The 36-year-old was driving along Old Perth Road at about 6pm on Thursday when a blue Vauxhall Corsa flashed its lights at her.
She stopped and two men who claimed they were officers tried to engage her in conversation. However, she became suspicious and drove away.
Sergeant Paul Cochrane said: "The woman did the absolutely right thing in this instance by removing herself from these men and contacting police to report her concerns. "I want to stress that if you are stopped by genuine police officers at any time, they will produce identification and explain fully the reason for you being stopped.
"Members of the public should remain vigilant and should they also be stopped in a similar manner by anyone claiming to be an officer, but not in uniform, or in possession of appropriate ID then leave the area immediately before reporting the matter to police immediately.
"Anyone with information relating to this inquiry should also get in touch."
