LOCAL NEWS: Do you know these fraudsters?


Police are releasing new images of a man or men they would like to speak to in connection with a series of fraud offences committed between June 2019 and January 2020. 

The crimes relate to bank accounts that were set up in Poole and Bournemouth during June, August and December 2019, with payments then being transferred to the accounts for non-existent goods. 

Inspector Phil Swanton, from Dorset Police, said: “We have received a further report in this series and following enquiries, we have obtained clearer images from identification documents that were used to open up the bank accounts.

“A detailed investigation continues and we are doing all that we can to identify those involved as these offences involve significant sums of money.

“I would urge anyone who may recognise the man or men pictured in the images to please get in touch.”
