Police appeal following �3,600 fraud

POLICE have released a CCTV image of a man they are keen to speak to in connection with a �3,600 fraud.

A businessman had his credit card stolen while he was in a meeting in a Huntingdon hotel at about 9am on September 29.

Within hours the card had been used to withdraw �3,600 from branches of Halifax in Huntingdon, St Ives, Kettering, Corby, Market Harborough and Leicester.

A further withdrawal of �900 was attempted at 1pm at another branch in Leicester but the offender left after they were challenged by a cashier.

Now police want to speak to the man pictured on CCTV.

PC Steve Marshall, investigating, said: “I am keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident or who recognises this man.

“I would also appeal to the man himself to contact police as he may hold vital information to help the investigation.”
