Bogus Police on Madrid Autovia M50
Beware - Bogus Police on M50 Madrid.
Travelling through Spain to our property in Almeria, we were asked to pull over by a silver coloured VW Golf that came up from nowhere. The passenger flashed a small plastic ID card with his photo and the heading 'POLICE NACIONAL' on it - though he only showed it very quickly and with most of it covered by his fingers. We immediately thought something was not right and locked out doors as it was an unmarked car and they weren't wearing any uniform.
The passenger got out and sort of saluted us before approaching the car - he/they were of arabic/asian descent and he wore a blue pin striped shirt with a tie and a tight small denim waistcoat that was completely button up, black jeans type trousers and black boots and wore brown pilot style sunglasses.
