Police say the Charlotte area is a hotspot for something you've probably never heard of. We hadn't! We're talking about "phantom towing" and what it means for you as a driver.
WBTV's David Spunt talked with a local couple who called a tow truck, after their vehicle broke down in the middle of rush hour traffic. By the time the tow truck arrived, their vehicle was long gone.
You won't believe what happened next. David Spunt investigates this stealth criminal activity and what you can do make sure you're not the next victim. Watch this special report Thursday at 11pm on WBTV.
