Don't fall victim to phone fraud, warns Sussex Police

A court has been hearing how a gang of fraudsters targeted a vulnerable pensioner in Sussex and tried to trick him out of four thousand pounds.

He withdrew the money from his bank, but his wife became suspicious and called the police.

Today, the man who acted as the courier, sent to collect the cash, was jailed for eight months.

Malcolm Shaw spoke to Jeff Green, the victim of the scam, and DC James Gwynne of Sussex Police.
