OAP falls victim to bogus Good Samaritan in Romford

An elderly man was robbed of his pension by a phony Good Samaritan in Romford.

The 73-year-old had withdrawn �500 from Nationwide Building Society, in South Street, at around 11am last Saturday, when he was approached by a young woman.

She pointed out a pink stain on his coat before wiping it with a tissue.

After the suspect left, the OAP noticed the cash and his bankbook had been stolen.

The suspect is described as white with a foreign accent, with long dark hair, and aged between 18 and 21-years-old.

She was wearing a white shirt, black trousers and carried an umbrella.
