Pensioners duped into giving out bank cards
10:10am Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in News
Fraudsters have targeted two elderly people in Oxford and tried to steal their bank cards.
A man posing as a police officer called the victims and told them criminals had their details and then tricked them into giving their bank details.
The caller then told the victims to put their bank cards in an envelope and give it to another fraudster.
An 89-year-old man was targeted in the city centre on Saturday and an 86-year-old woman from Summertown was tricked on Monday night.
Police described the suspect who came to pick up the cards as a slim Asian man aged about 25.
Call police on 101 with information.
