A SUSPECTED con artist has been arrested by police after he targeted an elderly woman in Rustington.
The pensioner had received a phone call from a male claiming to work for HSBC bank.
He told her that her bank card had been fraudulently used and £120 had been withdrawn from her account.
The man explained that a courier would be sent to her address to collect the card and a new one will be posted to.
The woman became concerned and alerted her family, who called the police.
No money had been taken from the bank account.
Police have arrested a local man and enquiries are continuing. No charges have yet been made.
The force is now urging anyone with elderly or vulnerable relatives or neighbours to please make them aware of this incident.
