Shoppers say they are being approached by a vehicle offering bogus deals.

The suspects involved in the First Choice Community Credit Union robbery reportedly got away in a dirty, white minivan.

The holiday season is a time many shoppers are looking for bargains, but not all deals are what they seem.

Shoppers say they were approached by an SUV, with people offering a sound system for $200, claiming it was worth thousands.

Those on the internet call it the White Van Scam. It was a problem 27 NEWSFIRST reported on several months ago, but with the holiday season the scam is making its way back to Central Kentucky.

Bargain hunters beware. We've all heard the saying, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
