Toronto police have released security images of a man and woman accused of bilking a woman out of hundreds of thousands of dollars in an elaborate bank fraud.

In a release, police said a woman walked into a bank on June 29, 2017, and posed as a client using fake I.D.

After gaining access to the victim’s account, the woman allegedly transferred over $400,000 into another account.

A few days later, a man entered another bank and using fake I.D., he posed as a client.

He then gained access to the funds that had been transferred and used the money to purchase a large amount of gold.
