NatWest gives full refund to pensioner scammed out of money

24 December 2015

The pensioner who was conned out of £23,000 with a cash machine scam, has got some good news this Christmas - Natwest have repaid the full amount to him.

The video, which you can see below, shows one man distracted the 93 year old, while the other does the dastardly deed. Lincolnshire Police referred to the incident as a "despicable and callous theft".

NatWest said: "Unfortunately our customer fell victim to a callous distraction technique whilst using an ATM. We have refunded all the money to the customer and continue to do everything we can to help the police identify the criminals."

DI Simon Bromiley, heading up the investigation, said: "What is quite clear from our inquiries so far is that these three men were very well organised in their deception and very selective about their victim. They watched the gentleman as he came into the bank and then carried out this despicable and callous theft."

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101.
