Officials with the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office are urging people to be on the lookout for scammers that have set up shop in parking lots of large retail stores.

The so called “White Van Speaker Scam” consists of people selling electronics and speakers out of a van.
Police say the men claim to be installers of home theatre equipment that have leftover product they want to sell, asking thousands of dollars for items barely worth a couple hundred bucks.

Anyone who comes across this scam is asked to call police.
