|This guy wants your money|
According to SFPD, the suspect works like this: He calls a resident and poses as a manager from a reputable bank in town, explaining that he is investigating employee thefts at the bank.
There were two instances where elderly women withdrew their money, resulting in a loss between $5,000 and $11,000. A third woman was targeted but did not withdraw her money.
The suspect is described as white man between the ages of 55 and 65 years old. He was last seen wearing a black fleece jacket and a baseball cap.
