The scam starts with con artists preying upon an elderly driver. The scammers from their car then frantically wave the senior down, yelling that their car is on fire. Once the senior pulls over, the con artists say 'Pop your trunk', one scammer then takes the elderly victim away from the car while the other one sneaks around back and actually starts a fire, faking an emergency in the back of the senior's trunk.

Carlsbad Police Detective Patty Parra says she's searching for a pack of gypsies.
