AN 85-YEAR-OLD man and his wife were conned into handing over £10,000 of their life-savings to bogus workmen.
The elderly couple, from Rutherglen, paid the cash after being told their roof needed urgent repairs.
It's understood the thieves even accompanied the pensioners to the bank to withdraw the money.
Police are hunting for the two men and warned other pensioners to be on their guard.
The men made two visits to the couple's home in Larchfield Drive, High Burnside.
They told them the roof needed repairs and would cost £10,000 to fix. It is not known when the money was handed over.
A spokesman for Strathclyde Police said: "It happened over two days on April 18 and 19 and inquiries are ongoing."
The first man is believed to be between 40 and 50 of age with fair hair. The second is aged between 20 and 30, with a slim build and fair hair with a reddish tinge.
The theft follows a spate of similar incidents in the Glasgow area.
Earlier this month a 90-year-old woman from the East End had hundreds of pounds stolen by a bogus caller.
The man claimed to be drilling in the area and said he needed to check her gas and electricity. He then took the money from the elderly woman's purse and assaulted her.
In March two conmen dressed as police duped two elderly residents in Airdrie and Rutherglen out of thousands of pounds in cash and jewellery after claiming to be investigating bogus callers.
A similar incident took place in Summerston last month when an 89-year-old woman was robbed of her purse by a bogus caller, while an 88-year-old woman living on Carntyne Road was targeted by a man who posed as a Scottish Water worker.
