Police have released this CCTV image of a man they would like to talk in connection with a fraud investigation in Brighton.

Two women victims have handed over thousands of pounds to a man they met though a recruitment agency in late February and early March who promised them a job with his company involving travelling abroad. He told them they would have to pay upfront for hotels, flights and laptops and he would then reimburse them.

The women paid more than £3,800 to the man and have nothing from him since or been reimbursed the money. The man in the image is white, about 5' 8", of stocky build and is bald.

Investigator Tamara Bennett said: "We are appealing for anyone who knows who this man is or has any information about him to come forward. He may have been travelling back and forth to Spain.

"We would also like to hear from anyone else who may have fallen victim to this scam."

Report online or ring 101 quoting serial 634 of 11/03.
