The hunt is on for a man who claimed to work for the NHS after he administered a fake COVID jab to an elderly lady. And then asked her for £160 which he said would be refunded by the NHS in due course.
Police hunt fraudster who gave fake COVID jab to elderly lady and charged her £160: Police hunting for the fraudster said that he “may be a danger to people’s lives.” The victim, who is 92, let him in to her home in Surbiton, South West London on 30th December. She told police officers that she was given the injection with a “dart like implement” before being charged £160.
Luckily the elderly lady was checked at a local hospital and was not appearing to be suffering any side effects from the fraudulent vaccine, although police do not know what substance she was injected with, if any. Kevin Ives, Detective Inspector, said “This is a disgusting and totally unacceptable assault on a member of the public which won’t be tolerated.
We are appealing to anyone who may have information that could assist us in identifying this man to get in touch. It is crucial we catch him as soon as possible as not only is he defrauding individuals of money, he may endanger people’s lives.”
Police have released images of the con man, dressed in a navy tracksuit with white stripes down the side, although these images are unbelievably from a SECOND visit he paid to the woman’s home on Monday asking her for another £100.
He is described as a white man in his early thirties, who is around 5ft 9 inches tall, of medium build, with light brown hair that is combed back and speaks with a London accent.
