BIRMINGHAM: Police are appealing for information after a man was tricked into buying a stolen car in Birmingham. The 58-year-old was duped into handing money to a man known as ’Dean Malik’ for a Nissan Qashqai in December 2018.
He’d met Malik at City Heights on Old Snow Hill in the city centre and handed over £12k for the car. It wasn’t apparent the car was stolen, and he was totally unaware he’d been duped until he was stopped by police.The victim took a photo of the man who allegedly sold him the car. And officers are now appealing to trace that person.
West Midland police say if anyone recognise the man in this image, please contact West Midlands Police via Live Chat at www.west-midlands.police.uk from 8am – midnight, or call 101 anytime. Alternatively call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. Please quote crime number 20BW/19242N/19.
