Police are looking for two men after three newsagents were hit by the same money scam in one day.
The men allegedly used distraction techniques to confuse shop assistants in Chippenham and Warminster.
After making purchases they managed to leave with nearly £200.
Police are appealing for anyone who recognises the men to contact Alaina Coles in the Crime Management Unit in Melksham on 101.
Alternatively call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be left anonymously.
