CCTV stills released in connection with fraud in Crawley

CCTV images have been released of a man wanted in connection with recent telephone and courier fraud in Crawley.

During the last few days of February three elderly people were conned out of approximately £9000.

An 85 year-old woman was coerced into handing over bank cards losing over £3500; a 73 year-old man was contacted by telephone from someone claiming to be from a fraud squad and he, too, handed over bank cards to a courier where later just under £4000 was taken.

In a third case a 95-year-old man received a call claiming the victim had money connected to a robbery.  He handed over around £2000 to a man who collected at the door.
