TEMPLE, TX — Temple police said they are searching for information on a man suspected of scamming the elderly.

Police said the man approached the victim and said he inherited a large sum of money and wanted to give the victim $40,000. The victim did not know the suspect.
The man reportedly asked the victim to give him $10,000 to prove he could be trusted and that he would give him $40,000 in return.

The victim withdrew the $10,000 and gave it to the suspect, who then left the area.

If you have any information on this man, call Temple police at 254-298-5500.
