A MAN was duped into buying a fake gold bar after he saw it for sale online earlier this year. Police said the victim went to a Joondalup Drive shopping centre where he met a woman, who showed him what looked to be an authentic 1oz gold bar wrapped in packaging in January. The victim later discovered it was a fake. Police have released images of a woman they believe can help with inquiries. She spoke with an accent and was believed to be aged between 40 and 50. She had a crucifix around her neck. Call Crime Stoppers and quote reference number 8810.
