Warning to drivers selling their cars over 'key swap' scam

A WARNING has been issued by South Worcestershire Police about a ‘key swap’ scam which sees people selling their cars targeted.

The pictured vehicle was taken for a test drive at 11pm on Wednesday.

The ‘buyer’ then returned the keys, but it was a fake one.

They then came back to steal the vehicle overnight.

People are also urged to report any suspicious activity to 101.
