I was on my way into Puerto Plata from Sosua and two guys in a little sedan alongside. I felt a bump but kept driving. Then again a second bump and then they began pointing. So I pulled over and the guy said something fell off your car and look there's liquid dripping. I thing they had throw a plastic jug with water.
He wanted be to go to his friends garage but funny thing is I was on my way to a mechanic anyway.
There was nothing wrong just a scam. Probably best never to pull over for a Dominican pointing at your car if it's still moving. And never ever follow them to a garage or other place.
Looked at buying a car once and met the guy in La Sirena. Told me the car was perfect. OK let's test drive it. 100 yards out of the parking lot all the lights went out and car shut down. Decided I'd walk back - he called me later offering it for $1,000 US less. Told him no gracias incluso si es gratis
That's a funny story .... sorry to say this be there is no honor code here... also anyone says I"m a man of god you need to watch your pants pockets
