“I would also like to remind the public to be aware of who is around them when they use cash machines.
“In addition, people are advised to shield their PIN and to avoid any ATM that seems to have been tampered with.
“If you see anything suspicious, please call police.”
Anyone who recognises the suspects, or has information that may assist police, should call detectives at Greenwich CID on 101.
