Police are warning residents in Amber Valley about a scammer who is calling people claiming to be a West Midlands Police officer.
Derbyshire Police says the man calls people telling them money has been taken from their account and asks them to withdraw some so it can be forensically examined.
He then visits the house to collect the cash. In some cases the man has picked people up to take them to the bank where the money is withdrawn and handed over.
We have noted that recent incidents have been primarily targeted at the elderly and vulnerable members of society, and while they are not the only victims of the crime, we would like to urge everybody to pass on this message to their parents, grandparents and elderly neighbours.
I would like to remind residents that the police would never contact you and ask you to withdraw cash under any circumstances.

A mechanic has mistakenly crashed a Mercedes through the wall of a Derbyshire garage.
Dramatic pictures show the bonnet encased in the remnants of the brick wall at Cherry's MOT Centre in Chesterfield.
It's believed the mechanic pushed the accelerator pedal by accident, sending the silver car flying into the side of the building.
Alan Cherry, who owns the centre, told ITV Central he was busy running his business, and felt angry about exaggerated reports of the accident.
"It was a pure accident. The mechanic was just doing his job.
"The press have blown it out of all proportion. I've read the car was worth £30,000 - it wasn't. It was 11 years old and it was worth £4,000 at most. It would've struggled to pass its MOT."
