Do you know this piece of filth?

A 90-year-old woman had more than $27,000 stolen from her bank accounts by a man who tricked his way into her home posing as a Telecom maintenance worker.

The woman was at home in Milford on Auckland’s North Shore when the man arrived, claiming he was there to repair a faulty phone line.

The pensioner believed him and let him into the house. While inside, he took her eftpos and credit cards.

After he left, he called the woman from a pay phone and managed to obtain the pin numbers to her cards, Constable Erik Bakker said.

Between April 8 and May 9, he withdrew $27,500 from her accounts from cash machines around the Auckland area.

At 11.34am on April 11, he was caught on camera using a card at an ASB Bank cash machine in Albany’s Westfield shopping centre.

The woman was unaware the money was being siphoned from her account until she was contacted by her bank.

“I am obviously keen to speak to the person in the footage,” said Mr Bakker.

The 90-year-old victim was upset about the loss. It was not clear whether her bank would cover it as she had given her pin number to the man.

This idiot is going to get caught.  It is just a matter of time.

If you recognise the man in this security footage, or have been targeted by someone similar claiming they are working for Telecom or another company, please contact Constable Erik Bakker at the Takapuna police station on (09) 353-0584 or email [email protected] Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555-111.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
