OFFICERS investigating a series of fraud offences have issued a further appeal for help from the public. As reported, Dorset Police is currently investigating a series of fraud offences between June 2019 and January 2020 where money was paid into bank accounts for non-existent goods.

The bank accounts involved were set up in the Poole and Bournemouth areas during June, August and December 2019.

An initial appeal was made in February, however, officers are now issuing renewed images of a man or men they would like to speak to as part of their enquiries.

Inspector Phil Swanton, of Dorset Police, said: "We have received a further report in this series and following enquiries, we have obtained clearer images from identification documents that were used to open up the bank accounts.

"A detailed investigation continues and we are doing all that we can to identify those involved as these offences involve significant sums of money.

"I would urge anyone who may recognise the man or men pictured in the images to please get in touch."
