Do you know this man?

He is wanted by North Yorkshire Police after a suspected scam which saw a York man robbed of thousands of pounds.

On 22 November 2019, the man received a call from someone claiming to represent their bank.

It is now believed the caller was a scammer, as following the call someone accessed the man’s bank account through a number of transactions in Leeds which amounted to a sum of over £8,000.

Police are investigating the unlawful withdrawal of funds from his bank account.

They are now appealing for the public’s help to identify a man pictured on CCTV footage in Leeds who officers believe may have information which could help the investigation.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police.
