Police want to speak to this man after a member of the public was conned out of £4,000 over an unpaid phone bill.

The man was contacted by someone posing as a representative from BT's debt recovery department, saying he owed them money.

He was told a staff member needed to collect his bank card, which he handed over. The card was then used to withdraw £4,000 from Lloyds Bank in Lincoln.

Anyone who recognises the man pictured should call Lincolnshire Police on 101.
