CCTV appeal: Man wanted in connection with BT scam

Police have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with a fraud investigation where £4,000 was stolen from a woman in Lincoln.

On April 6, a member of the public was contacted by someone claiming to be from the debt department at BT and was asked to pay an outstanding phone bill.

The victim agreed to pay by cheque but was then called back and informed a ‘member of staff’ needed to collect his bank card.
