A man purporting to be a police officer from London has contacted the victim stating they are investigating counterfeit currency being passed by bank tellers.

The man has persuaded the victim to withdraw money from their bank account, once withdrawn asking the victim to read the serial numbers before confirming that they are counterfeit, and that they would need to come and collect the money as evidence.
