NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Police are trying to identify two suspects who they say are wanted for a cash scam that happened in the Bronx.

Police say on the morning of July 22, a woman was walking down Westchester Avenue when another woman walked up to her with some cash and asked if she had lost it.

When the woman told her she hadn’t lost any money, the suspect suggests the two split the “found” cash.

That’s when police say a man walked up to the pair accusing the victim of stealing that money from him.

To show the cash wasn’t taken from the man, the first suspect suggests the victim take money out of the bank to “prove that she did not steal the money since she has money of her own,” according to police.

Police say the three then went to a Bank of America where the victim withdrew a large amount of cash and gave it to the woman who then took off with the man.

The female suspect is described as Hispanic, in her 40s, about 5’5″ weighing 150 pounds with light-colored hair.

The male suspect is described as Hispanic, between 30 and 35-years-old, around 5’8″ and weighing about 180 pounds with dark hair.

Police say both suspects spoke Spanish to the victim.

If you have any information, call police or Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477) or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
