i haven't been pulled over by a fake cop, that i know, although when I was 15 I was driving by myself and an undercover cop car pulled me over for out tail light. I refused to roll my window down, the cop asked to me step out of my car and I told him I wouldn't. I called 911 and they radio'd the cop to follow me home. I was about 3 miles from home.

I was so scared, I was histerical, you would have thought they beat me. but after all was said and done... i didn't get anything...(ticket nor warning)

There was several police imposters pulling over cars when I lived in Colorado 3 years ago, I think that they even caught some of them. Can't rember how many they caught.

Police imposters are starting to pop up all over the us. They just busted one here where I live.

-- seriously consider putting the car in gear and getting out of there. Tell the "officer" you are uncomfortable and that you will gladly follow him (or be escorted to) to the nearest police station.
I don't know... There was a story here on the news awhile ago about an elderly woman getting pulled over, but she didn't stop because she heard reports of fake cops pulling people over. She ended up either going home or to a police station and getting arrested there (the cop was real). Inside Edition reported that she had to serve jail time because she "ran" from the cops. I wouldn't have arrested her, but that's another topic.

As for this, there are so many cops here with their big ego trip, I rather take a chance with a fake cop than to be punished by a real one. >.<;

Well if you have a cell phone on you one thing you can do is call 911 and tell them your mile marker and ask for them to confirm that the cop that just pulled you over is a real cop. You could drive slowly on the side of the road until you get confirmation.

No guarantee you still wouldn't get in trouble for that but at least it would be obvious you weren't trying to run.

Whats scary is how easy it is to order the uniform, the badge, the hat, sirens, all by mail. They have a mail order catalogue with all the goods in it.
