Fraud Alert - male subject approaching in parking lots with auto body dent repairs - it is fraud. Do not participate.

FRAUD ALERT - we have received a report of a male subject approaching people in parking lots inquiring about doing minor body /dent repairs to their vehicles. He identified himself as Mike Lock (probably an alias) and then requests a check be made out to Angelo Marks. This is a common name in this type of scam. It is never a good idea to enter into any transactions made in parking lots or even when they come to your home in regards to home or driveway repairs.
