Police are on the hunt for bogus workmen who have conned a Dundee woman in her 80s out of a four-figure sum.
Police Scotland is also warning residents to be careful following incident in Whitfield Rise on September 23.
Two men attended at the home address of a vulnerable woman in her 80s and arranged to carry out some garden work.
They proceeded to carry out a minimal gardening job and asked for a disproportionate amount of money, police confirmed.
Over the next two weeks, they attended on numerous occasions and pressured the victim into giving them large sums of money, carrying out no work in return.
The incident came to light after staff at the OAP’s bank became concerned about unusually large withdrawals from her account.
She has given a four figure total to the perpetrators over the course of the two weeks.
Police said they had minimal descriptions of those responsible.
They are described as two men in their 20s, both about 5ft 9 and slim build, one with dark hair and one with curly hair.
The men drove an older style white Transit van.
A police spokesman said: “We know from speaking to neighbours that these men have attended at other doors in the vicinity offering to do work at inflated prices, and were in the area as recently as yesterday.
“If anyone in the area has private CCTV that may have captured images of them, please let us know.
“If you have any information that could assist our investigation, please call 101 or speak with any police officer.”
Also, information can be given anonymously through Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.
