TWO women are being hunted after a shop was tricked out of £308.

Crimestoppers UK has released CCTV images after Boots in Westbury Mall, Fareham, was targeted.

One woman went into the shop and asked for a refund on items that she said had been sent back to head office.

Another woman called the shop, claimed to be from head office, and said she authorised the refund of £308.

Staff at the store paid back the money to the first woman.

The fraud happened on June 1. It is thought the women have carried out the fraud at other shops, including receiving £162.50 at Eastleigh.
