Do you recognise this man wanted in connection with a £2,000 scam on a pensioner?
This man is wanted in connection with a scam that led to an 82-year-old woman withdrawing and giving away £2,000.
The victim had just finished shopping in Asda in Sutton High Street when she was approached by a woman who said she needed help to claim the prize from a winning lottery ticket at 3pm on Wednesday, September 4.
A man joined the conversation, saying the ticket was genuine. The man and woman convinced the victim she needed to withdraw £2,000 from her account in order to have a share in the lottery windfall.
The victim handed over the money and the three of them got into a taxi so the victim could go home and get her passport to claim the prize on behalf of the strangers and get her money, plus a large share of the winnings. During the journey male and female suspects both made excuses an got out of the taxi leaving the woman on her own and without her money.
Both suspects are of Asian appearance. The woman is around 40-years-old, short and chubby. She spoke with a European accent and wore a flower-patterned dress.
If you recognise the man in the image or know anything else about the incident, you can call police on 101 quoting reference number 4008519/13 or the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
