A man is appearing in court today (18) following a scam where a 68 year old St Albans resident was conned into handing over his credit card and personal details.

On Wednesday at around 10am the victim received a call from someone claiming to be from his credit card company

He was asked to verify his details including his pin number over the phone and then handed over his card to a “courier” later on in the day.

Nicholas Lee, 40, of Daleview Avenue in Chingford, was arrested in Enfield on the same day as the incident on suspicion of conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation.

He will appear at Hatfield Remand Court today.
