The male black in the photo is a suspect in a scam of an elderly person. The suspect, posing as an employee for an attorney that was representing the victim's niece in a case, took $10k in cash from the victim.  The case itself was fraudulent, and the victim’s niece was impersonated over the phone.  When the victim spoke with his actual niece, he realized he had been scammed.  The suspect is described as a male black, short hair, wearing glasses and a black covid mask, white puffy coat with “Armoni” written all over it, with a medium/muscular build.  Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call the Fort Wayne Police Department at 260-427-1201, Crime Stoppers at 260-436-7867, or use the anonymous “P3” tips app. 

The public should always be aware of demands to pay in cash.
