The group of offenders based in London targeted elderly and vulnerable members of the public pretending to be police officers, encouraging them to help an investigation by withdrawing money from the bank.

Couriers would then be arranged, also pretending to be police officers, to attend the victims’ addresses and collect the money.

Two were arrested following a high speed pursuit in Hereford in which they rammed police cars and other vehicles before they were detained.

More than 200 victims were identified by police, with many more targeted by the and with over 1,000 unique and known landline numbers contacted.

The benefit amount of the conspiracy, for money stolen or attempted to have been stolen was just under £200,000.
