This woman and a male suspect are wanted for tricking a 68-year-old out of $4,500 in Queens.

Police are looking for two suspects that swindled $4,500 out of a 68-year-old woman in western Queens.

According to the NYPD, on December 12, the suspects, a man and a woman, came up to the victim and told her that they had found a large sum of money. They said that they could split the cash with her, but they would have to pay taxes on it.

They then drove the victim to the bank where she withdrew $4,500 and gave it to the male suspect. They drove to another location and when the victim got out of the vehicle, the suspects fled in in a black sedan with Connecticut plates.

The suspects are described as a black man and woman, both 35 to 40 years old. The male was wearing a brown suit and the female was wearing a dark hat, blue and white scarf, and dark blue jacket.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).  The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
