SCAM: Police want to speak to Chowdry in connection with a large bank fraud case

MANCHESTER police are appealing for the public’s help to trace a man wanted in connection with a large bank fraud.

Police are keen to trace Rthammed Ashraf Chowdry, 42, after fraudsters stole £263,000 from the Natwest bank in Oldham.

Rthammed is also known as Taz.

Those involved in the scam pretended to be a genuine account holder before transferring hundreds of thousands of pounds from the account in July 2007.

Detective Sergeant Darren Grafton, from Oldham CID, said: “This investigation has been ongoing for several years and clearly we will not rest until those responsible are brought to justice.

“I am keen to speak to Rthammed and if anyone has information about his whereabouts, if not now but since this crime occurred, I would urge them to get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Greater Manchester Police on 0161 872 5050, Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via the wanted website, http://www.gmp.police.uk/wanted
