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.
