Police investigate ‘Playstation 5 fraud’ in Deeping St Nicholas

Police would like to speak to the pictured man

We would like to speak to the man pictured in relation to a fraud which occurred in Deeping St Nicholas on Harrow Road.

A Playstation 5 had been offered for sale on a social network site which the suspect had agreed to purchase, agreeing to collect and pay via bank transfer. The victim was shown what appeared to be a payment confirmation screen on the suspect’s phone showing the victim’s banking details.

The PlayStation was taken but the seller later found that no transfer has been made.
