Police have released CCTV images of two men they would like to speak to in connection with a fraud offence in Huntingdon last month.
At around 11.20am on Friday, May 6, the victim was at Ladbrokes betting shop in Huntingdon, when he was approached by a man who asked him if he would like to buy a laptop.
They went to the Sainsbury car park in St Germain Walk to view the laptop, along with a mobile phone, which the victim, a man in his 20s, agreed to buy for £900. They were also joined by a second man.
The deal was made, with the victim handing over cash and receiving the goods in a laptop bag, before the offenders left at speed in a dark red hatchback.
When he got home he opened the bag to find it had two bottles of water inside and no laptop or phone.
