The victims are told by the fraudsters to go to their local branch and make a large cash withdrawal of up to £20k.
The victim is coached to tell the bank staff it is for home improvements or loved ones.
The victim returns home and the cash is collected by a courier fraudster, never to be seen again.
There have been eight offences in Cheshire in December 2019 with a combined loss of almost £100k.
