The woman pictured is suspected of being involved in a scam which duped a 44-year-old Tonbridge care worker out of thousands of pounds of cash.

The care worker was at work in Sevenoaks on September 13, 2012, when her purse and credit cards went missing. 

She only realised they were gone when a man purporting to be from her bank called her up. Despite her reservations, he tricked her into divulging her PIN.

Subsequently, large amounts of money were withdrawn from cash machines in Tunbridge Wells and purchases were made in shops in Epsom, Surrey, before the victim's bank notified the woman and  the cards were genuinely cancelled.

 

CCTV images of another woman withdrawing cash from a bank ATM in Tunbridge Wells have now been obtained and Kent Police would like to identity the dark-haired mystery card-holder.

 

DC Matthew Hopkins from Kent Police said: "The victim in this case was right to be suspicious of divulging her PIN over the phone but was nevertheless duped into giving it out. 

"We have several theories as to the reason why the offender would travel between Kent and Surrey but hope someone is able to identify the woman shown.

"I would remind people that under no circumstances would a bank wish to obtain your PIN. If you receive a suspicious call, hang up and call the police."

 

Anyone with any information about the fraud offences can call Kent Police, quoting crime reference YY/16885/12. Alternatively, contact Kent Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

    Should this website be condoning somebody engaged in a criminal act because she is buxom and beautiful( in the writers opinion?). I am sure that the person who has been the victim of a fraud would not see it this way. Perhaps the lure of Nandos factory produced chicken has coloured the author's judgement.
