DETECTIVES are appealing for help in their hunt for conman who duped two Tube workers into handing over cash.

A man, captured in this CCTV image, approached a shop assistant at Willesden Green Tube station at about 2pm on Wednesday March 24 masquerading as a delivery man, and conned them into giving him money for a delivery which never materialised.

Just five days later he struck again at Finchley Road station where he again swindled a shop assistant into handing over money for a false delivery.

Anyone who recognises the man should call British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, quoting incident number 474 of 24/3/2010 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
