Dougherty County- Dougherty County Police want you to be on the lookout for money scam artists.

Today, two men posing as police officers and dressed in suits, convinced a Dougherty County man he was under investigation. They told him he may be a victim of identity theft, and eventually took off with a large sum of his money.

The men convinced the victim to withdraw money from his account at Security Bank. The bank sent him to another branch for the money. At the second branch, a teller tried to convince the man to call the police.

"When they were unable to convince him to let the police get involved, they had to do as he wished at which time the gave him a large sum of cash," said Lt. Craig Reno, an investigator with the Dougherty County Police.

Both men are identified as black males between the ages of 40 to 50, and may be driving a small green compact car. If you have any information about these men, call Dougherty County Police at 229-430-6600.
