Beware Of Fake Valets: NBC10 Philadelphia
Man posing as parking attendent steals car in Center City, Philadelphia, Penn.
A South African woman was tricked into handing her keys over to a car thief in Center City, Philadelphia, according to NBC10. Madeline Vaneck, who is in the U.S. on business, said a man posing as a valet handed her a ticket when she entered the parking garage. She handed him her keys and he took off with her 2013 Toyota RAV4.
"It all happened so fast," Vaneck told NBC10. "I was intimidated."
Police say this is the second such incident of a car being stolen by false attendants at area parking structures this week. The other theft involved an elderly woman's 2007 Toyota Camry.
