Arizona: Gold scam hits parking lots on northwest side
- All that glitters is not gold, even if it's stamped "14K."A handful of people on the northwest side learned that the hard way in recent weeks after apparently falling victim to a parking-lot scam, said Joan Long, manager of Gold Buyers of America at Foothills Mall, 7401 N. La Cholla Blvd.Three different people have come into the store in recent weeks with nearly the same stories, she said. They were approached in nearby parking lots by a person asking for gas money. The person offered a gold chain in return for the kind deed.The chain in all three situations was identical, Long said. It was a gold, figaro-style chain with a 1-inch to 1-and-a-half-inch pendant of Jesus Christ's head with a crown of thorns.
