British Police on Friday hunted a fraudster who tricked a 92-year-old woman into handing over to receive a fake coronavirus vaccine.
The fraudster knocked on the door of the woman in Surbiton, southwest London, on December 30, claimimg to work for the state-run National Health Service (NHS).
The woman allowed him into her home, where he jabbed her in the arm with a “dart-like implement” before asking her for £160 ($217, 177 erous), which the fraudster said would be refunded.
Detective Inspector Kelvin Ives From Ives from the City of London Polce Said: “This is a disgusting and totally unacceptable assault on a member of the public which won’t be tolerated.
“It is crucial we catch him as soon as possible as not only is he defrauding individuals of money, he may endanger people’s lives”.
