Camilla-- Police need your help finding the scam artists.

Camilla Police are looking for this woman seen here on a bank surveillance picture. On May 14th, 64-year-old Dorothy Jackson of Newton was approached by this woman and an older black male while shopping at Winn Dixie.

The pair told Jackson she could have $10,000 if she proved she had two-thousand dollars in her bank account. The couple took Jackson to Heritage Bank in Camilla where she withdrew two-thousand dollars.

The scam artists put the money in a sack, told Jackson they changed their mind and then gave Jackson a different sack with a handkerchief inside, but no money.

If you have any information call Camilla police.
