A CONMAN tricked an 87-year-old pensioner out of a “substantial amount of money”, police said.
The victim was visited at his home in East Avenue, Grantham, by the trickster who asked for money for work which had not been carried out. The incident took place at around 3.30pm on Tuesday.
A police spokesman advised: “A genuine caller will happily wait outside while you check on them by calling their organisation or a family friend or neighbour.”
