Surrey Police is warning motorists to remain vigilant following a recent spate of people being conned into giving money for petrolwith the suspects pretending to be drivers in need.
The first incident was reported to police on Thursday, 6 November. The victim, a 64-year-old man from Walton-on-Thames, had been driving along Lammas Lane, Esher, at around 2.15pm when he was flagged down by the suspects stating they needed cash for fuel. He gave them £20 cash in exchange for three gold rings and the suspects promised to repay the money and gave the victim a business card.
The rings have since been established as being worthless and the business card fake.
The two suspects have been described as being smartly dressed, dark skinned, possibly of Arabic origin, having a large build and being around 40 to 50 years old. Their vehicle is believed to be a black Mercedes saloon car.
Two further incidents took place on Saturday, 15 November between 9.45am and 10.10am.
One victim, a 54-year-old man from Byfleet, stopped to assist a man who flagged him down at the slip road of the A3 by the Cobham roundabout. The suspect said he needed petrol to get to Glasgow and offered the victim some rings.
The victim declined the rings but drove to the Sainsbury's petrol station in Cobham whilst the suspect followed in his car. It is believed that the suspect had four passengers in his vehicle.
Having arrived at the petrol station the victim handed the suspect £240 for fuel. The suspect took the victim's mobile phone number, gave him a business card which was later established as fake, and promised to contact the victim to repay the money when he reached his destination. He then got back in his vehicle and left the scene.
The suspect has been described as having an Asian appearance, being around 40 to 45 years old and having a stocky build. He had a moustache and short, dark well-kept hair. He was wearing a white shirt and dark coloured trousers and tie. It is possible that he understood Arabic.
The other men in the suspect's car, which is believed to be a Mitsubishi, have been described as being of a smart appearance and of similar ethnicity to the suspect.
The other victim, a 58 year old man from Farnborough, was flagged down by two men who also stated that no money to get to Glasgow and offered to sell him gold jewellery for £250. The incident took place on the A316.
The suspects have been described as being Asian or Eastern European and having foreign accents. It is believed they were driving a dark blue Saab.
They followed the victim to the BP petrol station on Staines Road East,which is adjacent to Kempton Park in Sunbury, where the victim withdrew £250 for the suspects.
Investigating officerPolice Constable Dave Atkinson, said: "These are despicable offences where innocent people have had their goodwill taken advantage and they have been conned out of money by bogus motorists in need when stopping to help.
"I urge anyone who comes across people acting suspiciously at the roadside or trying to flag passing motorists down for assistance to call 101.
"Similarly, there is a strong possibility that these crimes may be linked and other incidents may have taken place in other parts of the county. Anyone who has been offered jewellery in exchange for money for petrol should contact Surrey Police. Any information, no matter how small it may seem, could prove vital to the investigation and bring those responsible to justice.”
Anyone who has information is urged to contact Surrey Police either by using our online reporting system found at http://www.surrey.police.uk/ or calling 101 quoting reference 45140096483. Alternatively Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Witness appeal after fatal collision on M3 near Sunbury
Surrey Police is appealing for witnesses after a young woman died following a collision and resulting car fire on the M3 motorway this evening.
The incident took place on the northbound carriageway between junctions 2 and 1 near Sunbury at around 11.18pm when a Vauxhall Zafira collided with a Toyota IQ2 which subsequently caught alight.
Emergency services attended the scene where the woman driver of the Toyota had suffered life threatening injuries. She was taken to St George's Hospital in Tooting where she sadly later died.

Dog left with injuries after being struck with stick in Hambledon
Police are appealing for witnesses after a border collie was injured with a stick whilst out with his dog walker.
The incident occurred on a footpath in fields behind St Peter's Church Lane, Hambledon at around 2pm on Friday 19 September.
The dog walker was walking several dogs along the path when a male jogger approached carrying a stick. The border collie went up to the jogger and was struck with the stick causing an injury to his eye. The jogger then left the scene.
Officers are keen to identify the jogger and speak to anyone who was in the area at the time to understand the full circumstances of what happened.
The jogger is described as a white man, aged between 40 and 50-years-old, around 6ft tall and of a stocky build. He had greying hair described as being "salt and pepper” colouring and was wearing a white t-shirt and blue jogging trousers. He spoke with a local accent and it is believed he is left handed.
Investigating Officer PC Neil Winter said: "The dog suffered a nasty injury and I am urging anyone who may have seen the incident, recognises the man from the description or witnessed the events leading up to the offence to contact us as soon as possible.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Surrey Police on 101 quoting reference 45140079169 or by using the online reporting system found at http://www.surrey.police.uk/. Alternatively the independent charity Crime Stoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Attempt theft of cash point machine from village store in Elstead
A village store in Elstead was targeted by thieves this morning (Monday, 22 September) when an attempt to steal a cash point machine was made.
The incident happened when three men forced their way into The Spar store on The Green, Elstead at around 4.30am and attached straps to the stand alone cash facility. The suspects then connected the straps to a silver and maroon Mitsubishi Shogun and tried to get away with the machine. The straps snapped and the offenders, who all had their faces covered and wore gloves, made off in the vehicle.
As a result of the failed smash and grab, one of the doors at the store was ripped off its hinges.
Detectives in Waverley are appealing for anyone who may have seen the Mitsubishi in or around the vicinity of the offence. DC Mike Taylor investigating said: "This was an audacious attempt to steal a cash machine and I am hoping there may be someone who may have seen the suspects and the vehicle involved – maybe someone out on a milk round or a shift worker on their way home might have seen something which struck them as suspicious.
Please call Surrey Police with information.”
Neighbourhood Inspector Tom Budd said: "This offence will come as a shock to the community and will mean that a much used facility is out of action causing hardship for customers and the shop itself. Residents can be assured that officers are doing everything possible to locate the offenders and bring them to justice.”
A vehicle believed to be the one involved in the offence has since been recovered in the Hartley Witney area of Berkshire.
Anyone with information is asked to call Surrey Police on 101 quoting reference 45140079811 or by using the online reporting system found at http://www.surrey.police.uk/. Alternatively the independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.

We have a digitally restored version of the film featuring high-definition sound and hard-coded singalong subtitles.

Not only that we have a costume competition, so break out those dirndls, lederhosen, hats with feathers and nuns' habits, or even think outside the box (or should that be 'brown paper package tied up with string'?): maybe there are some old curtains you could use for inspiration?
Tickets cost £15 (£10 for children under 15) and include a free drink on arrival. They can be purchased in advance from Chiddingfold Post Office or via our brand new website. They are also on sale at the box office of our regular screenings.

I've written many pieces in our Parish
magazine about our bells;
at St Mary's Chiddingfold John.
By now I hope you appreciate that we have a very special legacy in these
bells, and I do hope that the village is a much better place for having
them. (It would be a very sad thing to NOT have them surely!)
However, I, and the other bell ringers, are mindful that our ringing is intrusive,
Despite our best efforts, there are occasions when the music is not at it's
best, particularly when practice and learners are involved! Whilst we have
some sound-control, the sound of the bells does reach parts that other music
So I am asking the village, and anyone else affected, to let me know your
