A man who lost his wallet gave his pin number out over the phone to a criminal – who then took out £300 from his account.
Police have released CCTV of a man they want to speak to following the theft and fraud.
The suspected fraud took place on Wednesday September 26 at the RBS Bank on Queen Street in Norwich.
The victim had left his coat at Norwich International Airport with his wallet in it for about 30 minutes between midday and 12.30pm.
A few minutes later he was called on his mobile by someone claiming to be a member of staff from the RBS Bank.
They said they were concerned that someone was trying to buy items of the internet for £6,000 and asked for his PIN number which the victim gave him.
A short while later at 1.04pm at RBS bank a man withdrew £300 from the ATM.
