Police investigating reports of drivers being stopped on the roads and asked to swap cash for jewellery have made arrests.
Three men, aged 38, 40 and 41 were arrested on suspicion of fraud at around 2.30pm on Wednesday, November 23.
All of the incidents took place on roads around Greenhithe.
Insp Gary Woodward said: “I would advise anybody who is approached in the street by somebody offering cheap goods or seeking cash in exchange for something that appears valuable, to decline.
“Doing so will reduce the risk of people buying items that are stolen, faulty or of minimal value.”
The men, all of whom are from Bedford, were bailed to return to police on January 13 next year.
