NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (WRDW) -- The Richmond County Sheriff's Office is working to identify the two men in these pictures in connection to a theft by deception case.

According the Sheriff's Office, the suspects approached the victim at the Wal-Mart in North Augusta on May 20. They allegedly told the victim she would receive a large amount of money if she gave them some of her own money and then prayed over it.

The woman willingly drove the two men to Augusta where she withdrew money from two banks and retrieved $500 from her home before giving the men the money and driving them back to North Augusta.

The Sheriff's Office says the men told her the money would be put inside her truck and that she could get it when she got home.

When the victim returned to Augusta, she discovered she had been scammed.

If you have any information, call the Richmond County Sheriff's Office.
