Gardaí say they’re aware of a scam where a woman is targeting motorists in Kerry car parks for cash.
Margaret from North Kerry contacted Radio Kerry to say she was in a car park in Tralee last Sunday morning, when a woman knocked on her car window and asked for money, saying her car was locked in another car park and she needed money to get out.
The woman is described as being of average height, with curly, medium length hair tied back, and being in her 40s or 50s.
Other listeners in the county have since contacted Radio Kerry with similar experiences, but sometimes the woman asks for money saying her car was out of petrol.
Gardaí say they’re aware of such scams operating, and Margaret says she wants to make other people aware of it before they too get caught.
