Police have since been trying to identify the man.
According to New Albany police investigator Jeff Chism, he received a phone call on Thursday from an investigator with the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office in California.
The California investigator had a hunch about the man’s identify and wanted to know more about the case after having seen the story on WTVA.com.
The California investigator sent a photo of the man to an investigator in the United Kingdom.
Investigators identified a Romanian man as a possible suspect.
Chism said the man appears to be part of a group of scam artists who travel to the United States to perform the scam.
