Police are appealing for public assistance after a victim was scammed of more than $7000 last month.
Investigators were told an unidentified person has contacted the victim stating they were a police officer.
The “supposed” officer told the victim she needed to pay money to be exonerated from a criminal investigation involving her bank accounts.
The victim complied and withdrew $7,700 and met an unknown female on Tanderrum Way in Broadmeadows on November 27 and gave her the money.
The victim, a 47-year-old Campbellfield woman, had no further contact with this woman.
She is described as being 30-40 years old, with black hair, wearing a purple jumper, white pants and carrying a black handbag.
