A couple paid in excess of £3,000 in advance rent for an apartment in Swansea Marina on 29th November after answering an advertisement in a local newspaper.

After moving in, they were then approached by the landlord of the apartment and it was established they were the victims of a fraud as the suspects had previously rented the apartment for three days.

 Police have released CCTV images of two people they want to trace in connection with the matter. It is believed they were using a dark coloured BMW car.

PC Ruth Davies of Swansea Central Police Station said “We are appealing to anyone who recognises them or who knows of their whereabouts to contact the police or Crimestoppers anonymously.

 “The victims in this case have paid in excess of £3,000 in advance rent only to discover that the agreement they had signed was fraudulent.”

 Call South Wales Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting occurrence number 62130376502.
