Thames Valley Police has released images of a man officers would like to speak to in relation to a fraud in Wendover.

On 22 August a man in Wendover received a call from someone reporting to be from his bank saying that something was wrong with his credit card and someone was in the area to collect it. Someone then visited the man's home, reporting to be from the bank and took his credit card.

The victim's credit card was then used a number of times in Surrey and Croydon, London.

Investigating officer PC Lisa Murton, based at Aylesbury police station, said: "I am keen to speak to the man in these CCTV images as I believe he may have information that is vital to my investigation.

"If you recognise the man in these images please let me know either by completing our online form, quoting reference number 43180258129, or by calling 101. Alternatively, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

"The method involved in acquiring the victim's credit card is one that is frequently used in scams across the country. Banks and the police will never send someone to your home address to collect your bank or credit card. If you have any suspicions or concerns during a phone call, hang up and use another phone to call your bank from a number provided on their website or documents. Alternatively, call the police on 101. If it is not possible to use another phone, then wait five minutes before calling."
