Two suspects convinced an elderly Daly City man to give them a large amount of money Monday afternoon by telling him they were lost Africans who needed the money for people in need. One of the suspects approached the man when he was loading
groceries in his car at a Costco on South Airport Boulevard, according to South San Francisco police. The suspect said he was from Africa and was lost, and he spoke with what police said was probably a fake accent. He asked for a ride to San Francisco so he could give money to some people in need. The victim drove the suspect to Alemany Boulevard in San Francisco, where a second suspect met them, police said.The two convinced the elderly man to withdraw money from his bank account. They told him they would pay him back what they borrowed plus some in exchange for his generosity. The man has not been in contact with the suspects since Monday.The first suspect is described as a 50-year-old man, about 5 feet 8 inches and 145 pounds. He has a dark complexion, black hair and brown eyes.
