0

Police are looking for the two scam artists caught on camera in the video above.

The suspects are described as wearing dark colored wigs and sunglasses, last seen driving a darkly colored four-door Audi, according to DNAinfo.

The site goes on to describe their scam:

The con happened August 28, 2012 near Kings Highway and E. 16th Street, police said.

The suspects, two middle-aged women, approached the female victim with a bag they told her was filled with cash. In exchange for sharing the supposed cash, the victim gave the scammers an undetermined mound of money.

Cops call the ruse a so-called pigeon drop, a term that describes a scam in which the victim is easily conned.
