Police would like to warn the public about a fraud targeting elderly Mosman residents. Thieves steal a person’s wallet and then later call the owner pretending to be their bank.
At least two incidents involving this methodology have occurred in Mosman this year with the most recent occurring on 2 August. The wallet owner is deceived into providing their PIN to the thief who states they are from the bank and need to organise a replacement card. The thief then uses the card and PIN to withdraw cash from the victim’s account.
