GMP appeals for information following fraud offence in Fairfield, Droylsden

Greater Manchester Police continue investigating and have identified two men they would like to speak to in connection with this incident (pictured) who they believe could help with the investigation.

The fraud by misrepresentation case occurred in the Fairfield area of Droylsden on Tuesday, 30 January 2024, at around 5pm.

No arrests have been made at this stage, but those responsible are believed to have links to Ashton-in-Makerfield in Wigan and have made contact by phone to begin the scam.

After conducting several enquiries, Officer PC Derbyshire of GMP’s Tameside district said: “This is a very upsetting and devastating crime that had led to an elderly victim being taken advantage of at his doorstep, who was in a very vulnerable state and has lost thousands of pounds as a result.

“This is in addition to the emotional trauma suffered, and we continue to provide the relevant support to them throughout.

“As we carry on to investigate this incident, we are now in a position to appeal to the public and, in particular, these two men who we hope have information that could help.

*Anyone with information or details should contact 101 quoting incident 1429 of 01/02/2024. Alternatively, details can be passed anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
