Met officers are appealing to the public for help in identifying a man in connection with fraud offences.

When meeting the sellers in person, the suspect uses a false driving licence and shows fake evidence of a bank transfer that he says he’s made to pay for the items. The man then walks away, without paying the sellers, with the items in his possession.
Items taken from victims at locations across London include mobile phones, cameras and gaming equipment.
The suspect has given a false address in the West Drayton area and has used the aliases Ben Hudson and Joshua Harris.
Met officers based in Camden and Islington are investigating and have released an image of a man they which to speak to in connection with the offences.
Anyone who may know the man in the image or with information that could assist this investigation can help by calling 101 quoting reference 5560/26APR. To remain anonymous, please contact Crimestoppers online or call 0800 555 111.
