A man who claimed to be a police officer who is said to have pocketed £127,000 from 19 victims in an alleged fraud is back in court next month.
Shaun Johnson, 21, has been charged with 19 counts of conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation.
The charges relate to a number of incidents between January 1 and July 30 this year, in which victims have been encouraged to withdraw large quantities of money, before handing it over to a courier who falsely claims to be a police officer.
It is understood the victims originate from Norwich, north Norfolk as well as other parts of the country.
Johnson, of Prout Road, London, first appeared at Norwich Magistrates Court in August having been charged with the offences.
