THIS is the face of a woman police say has been repeatedly cheating a 96-year-old pensioner of money.

The CCTV image has been released this week in response to what officers are describing as a despicable crime.

They say an elderly woman living in Dagenham has been targeted by the woman who has knocked on her door several times.

She asks the pensioner for change for a �20 note, but when the elderly lady hands over two �10 notes, she realises too late that the �20 note is fake.

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
