Two people are being hunted after an 87-year-old woman had her bank card stolen by distraction thieves in Gillingham.
The pensioner was targeted as she unloaded shopping into her car - before her card was used to spend £600.
Now Kent Police detectives have released CCTV images of a man and a woman they want to speak to in connection with the theft.
The victim was approached by a man who said she had dropped a £5 note next to her car in Duncan Road.
She opened her purse and the man put the money inside.
Meanwhile, a woman approached the victim's friend and started talking to her.
But when the pensioner got home, she noticed her bank card was missing and had been used to buy £600 of goods in a Maidstone shop.
Police today released details of the theft, between 10.10am and 10.30am last Wednesday.
Witnesses or anyone who recognises the people in the CCTV images are urged to phone PC Glynn Pogue at Kent Police on 07870 252209, quoting reference XY/001642/14.
