Detectives are hunting for a scammer who passes off counterfeit money after persuading women that he needs change for a taxi.
The crook struck twice in the Kilburn area on June 9 after duping his victims into giving him change for a 50 Euro note.
In the first incident in Fairhazel Gardens he told the 31-year-old he claimed to be related to her neighbour.
In the second, which happened in Greencroft Gardens, he claimed to be a neighbour of the victim.
The suspect is white and around 35.
