Hackney Police have released an image of a man believed to be based in Stamford Hill or Stoke Newington who they would like to talk to in relation to an email scam.
He is believed to be based in the north of the borough in the Stoke Newington and Stamford Hill area.
Victims have been contacted by email and told they have won £1,000,000.
However, they are told they need to pay an initial release fee before the money can be transferred to them.
A Hackney police spokeswoman said: “This is quite an old, common scam but it seems people are still being enticed by the promise of instant wealth.
She urged anyone who has fallen victim to a scam to contact the authorities.
Remember, if you are a victim of a scam or an attempted scam, however minor, there may be hundreds or thousands of others in a similar position.
