LAKE WORTH, Fla. – The search is on for two people, who detectives say scammed money from an unsuspecting victim.

Palm Beach Sheriff's deputies said the couple you see in the above police sketch found their victim at a gas station near Jog Road and Lantana Road in Lake Worth.

They convinced the victim to withdraw money from an ATM so she could give it to a fictional church.

The suspects and victim then drove to another location and then the thieves just walked away.
