A group of men used a classic confidence game to trick people out of their money last week in Oak Creek.
According to the police report:
An employee reported eight people scamming people for money with card games in the parking lot at Love's Travel Center, 9650 S. 20th St., at 12:30 p.m. June 13.
The people, described as "scruffy" males, were parked by the semi-truck parking lot and used three-card games to scam people into losing cash.
The men fled in two vehicles, and police were unable to find them.
