Groups have been approaching people in parking lots, gas stations and in other public areas this month, with offers to sell gold jewelry or electronics at extremely low prices, according to Mounties.

RCMP officials say the jewelry and electronics are fake or low quality.

The groups have been spotted in Oyen, Brooks, near Cross Iron Mills in Rocky View County and in Swift Current, Sask. and the attempted scams are said to have occurred between March 2 and 14.

Descriptions of the suspects and vehicles have not been released.

Anyone who is approached by the suspected scammers is encouraged to report the incident to local police.
