Police search for two men they would like to speak to over a scam on Cornish shop staff.

It is claimed the so called 'ringing the changes' trick has been used in Par, Bodmin and Liskeard this week.

That is when cashiers are confused by a series of requests to change notes while the till is open.

You can see CCTV pictures of two suspects below.

The first is described as being Mediterranean in appearance, aged in his 30's with dark hair . He sometimes wears a tweed flat cap.
 
The second is described as being, a white man and aged, in his 60's.

Both men are well spoken with London accents.
 
Police are advising shop owners to warn their staff of the scam and that if someone asks for change in this manner please ask another member of staff to assist and double check the exchange.
 
If anyone has any information as to identity of either of these men they are asked to contact police on 101 quoting police reference BD/14/280 or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 or report online at www.Crimestoppers-uk.org
