A pensioner from Leigh has been swindled out of more than £100,000 after being repeatedly targeted by a conman for more than 12 months.
The 72-year-old fell victim after agreeing a price for maintenance work on his driveway when the conman visited his home.
The trickster gave his name as "Howard" and claimed to work for a company called "Marshalls".
The work the victim got for his money effectively amounted to his driveway being jet washed, police said.
Over a period of 15 months the offender used the same approach to systematically steal £107,000 from the victim, who continued to hand over cash believing he would be fully reimbursed and fearful that he would not be if he did not do as asked.
