White van scam

One of the oldest (and most frequently repeated) scams targeting students is the so-called white van speaker scam.

It involves people with a van or commercial vehicle (of any colour, often with a logo) selling electronic goods, supposedly at a huge discount, direct to passers-by. These scams will often target residential areas where lots of students live. The products being sold are usually manufactured especially for the scam, and of very poor quality.
