Would-be tenants in Swindon have been conned out of thousands of pounds by handing over deposits to a fake landlord.
At least two people were fooled into handing over deposits after viewing a property in Ferndale Road in April earlier this year.
The house had been advertised as available to rent on Gumtree, and both viewings were conducted by the same man posing as the owner.
However, after the would-be tenants paid their deposits, which totalled more than £3,000, and tried to move in, they came into contact with the real owner of the house - who said it had been broken into and the locks changed.
Officers from Wiltshire Police have released two images of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the alleged rental frauds.
Anyone with information should contact LCI Jones on 101, quoting crime reference 54190036118.
