A pensioner from Rothwell has been left unable to sleep or leave the house after she was the victim of a callous distraction burglary.
Helen Tilt, who's 81, was followed home by a couple who spotted her in the supermarket.
The woman pretended to be pregnant and at risk of losing her baby to gain Mrs Tilt's trust and steal her bank card.
The incident happened in March, she hasn't been the same since.
Her daughter Joanne is her full time carer, and convinced her to move to Rothwell shortly after her husband passed away.
Unknowingly the fraudsters had picked the perfect target. Members of Helen's family have suffered miscarriages before.
Police say the couple have tried to dupe other older people.
They tried to use the card multiple times including at a McDonalds in Northampton, where again they were caught on CCTV. Two weeks earlier in Wellingborough they withdrew nearly 5 thousand pounds from an 86-year-old's account.
