Man and woman asking for cigarettes take wallet from elderly man’s homePETERBOROUGH — Cambridgeshire authorities are reminding the elderly to be wary of a man-and-woman con team after a 71-year-old man fell victim to their basic but fruitful ruse.
Last Thursday, a man knocked on the victim’s door saying his mother had just died and he needed a cigarette, according to a Cambridgeshire Constabulary news release.
A woman soon followed at the door, also asked for a cigarette and then joined her partner in the victim’s house.
The two quickly disappeared with the man’s wallet, which held about 600 pounds ($1,100), according to the Cambridgeshire Constabulary.
Authorities advise people not to allow strangers into their home.
