Elderly couple robbed of £60,000.

More than £60,000 has been stolen from an elderly couple who were asked to give their bank details over the phone.
The couple, aged 90 and 88, from Perth, were targeted by a cold caller.
The caller duped them into handing over the details by saying there was a criminal inquiry at their bank
Tayside Police are warning members of the public to be "extremely cautious" about giving personal and financial information over the phone.
A police spokesman said: "While it is common practice to carry out transactions over the phone, we would advise people not to share financial or personal details with a cold caller."
