Police say they have busted yet another man for pulling a big scam on people looking for a place to leave their car in downtown Nashville.

Danny Williams was allegedly selling the fake passes at pay lots along First and Fourth avenues.

A Central Parking employee snapped pictures of Williams before calling police.

Williams is now facing three charges of felony criminal simulation.

This is not the first time someone has gotten in trouble in connection to the sale of fake parking passes. Larrie Carroll was arrested in March after police say he was selling homemade passes at a lot on Second Avenue.

Some victims even ended up with a ticket or a boot on their car.

Here's a few things to keep in mind to avoid being scammed:

  • If there's an automatic pay station, there won't be attendants, so don't give up your money if someone claims to be one.
  • Always look at your ticket before putting it in on your dashboard.
  • Make sure the company name on the ticket matches the one on the sign at the lot.
  • Make sure the printed time on the ticket is correct.
