    Story

    John Thompson, 91, lost his life savings after he was tricked into transferring three payments of £4,900 out of an account he had for more than 50 years.

    The former police officer, who lives in Sprotbrough, Doncaster, was contacted by a man claiming to be from the security department of his bank.

    Mr Thompson uses free call blocking software on his landline which can be sued to screen out unwanted telephone calls, but the scammers used sophisticated methods to make it look like they were calling from his bank's local branch number.

    The Yorkshire Post is fundraising to help John get his hard-working money back and have the retirement he planned.
