Beware of the money changing trick

Oberursel’s police are warning of a thief in the area using a “money changing trick”.

In one recent incident a 76-year-old man had just withdrawn money from the cashpoint in Camp King when he was approached by someone described as being of southern origin who asked him to change some money for him.

When the victim looked into the coin compartment of his purse, the man snatched the notes and disappeared.

He is described as between 25 and 30 years old, 185cm tall and was wearing a white shirt and black shoes.
