Pensioner Barry Stone has been reunited with his life-savings thanks to a taxi driver who realised he had been hoodwinked into taking part in a cruel cash scam.
The 78-year-old, from Marlow, was handed back his £12,000 cash savings after shameless tricksters persuaded him he needed to withdraw it all from the bank and hand it to the cabbie who would collect it from him.
Retired cabinet maker Mr Stone received a call on his landline from scammers, who claimed they were ringing from Scotland Yard and investigating bank fraud.
They told him to withdraw £12,000 from his bank account and hand it over to a taxi driver who would drive it to London so they could check for fingerprints on the bank notes.
