Thieves pretending to be police get elderly victims to withdraw cash

Thieves pretending to be police detectives have been targeting elderly people in Devon and asking them to withddraw large amounts of cash.

One victim was visited at his home by a man claiming to be a police detective. The man asked him to withdraw a large quantity of cash that he would return to collect and then a greater sum would be deposited into his bank account.

A police spokesman said: "Police officers will never ask members of the public to withdraw money.

"If you have any suspicions, please contact police by calling 101 quoting log number 513 11/10/17."
