According to Metro Police, the incidents happened on Nov. 13, 14 and 15. In two of the cases, the suspects drove the victims, ages 77 and 78, to their banks where the women withdrew $11,000 and $1,000.
The 77-year-old discovered envelopes instead of $11,000 when she checked the bag after being dropped off back at home. The suspects told the 78-year-old that they would keep the $1,000 for safekeeping.
In the third case, the men were driving the 87-year-old victim to her bank when she told them she felt ill. They drove her home but she had already given them $1,200 cash in an envelope. They returned the envelope but replaced the money with newspaper.
The suspects, who appeared to be in their late 50's, were carrying radios and badges, and drove a dark blue or black four-door sedan or SUV.
One of the suspects went inside the bank with the 77-year-old victim while she withdrew money. Anyone who recognizes him from the attached surveillance photos is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.

House passes 2-year moratorium on dam barriers
May 21, 2013 19:12 GMT
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- The U.S. House has passed legislation that would put a two-year moratorium on an Army Corps of Engineers plan to erect barriers to prevent people from fishing below dams on the Cumberland River.
U.S. Rep. Ed Whitfield heralded final passage of the Freedom to Fish Act on Tuesday. Whitfield was a leading proponent of the measure in the House.
The bill, introduced by Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., was co-sponsored by Sens. Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Bob Corker of Tennessee.
Whitfield said the bill thwarts, at least temporarily, an effort to "take away some of the best fishing in Kentucky." Passage of the measure, Whitfield said, allows time to work out a permanent solution.
The measure now goes to President Barack Obama for consideration.
