Police are appealing for help in tracking down two bogus callers who ransacked an elderly couple's home in South Queensferry.
The couple, both in their 90s, fell victim to two men who came to their door at 1330 BST on Wednesday.
They demanded to speak to the husband about the state of the garden before forcing their way inside.
The couple were both pushed down into chairs while the suspects searched through the couple's belongings.
They escaped with about £10.
They are described as being about 5ft 8ins, aged between 30 and 40, wearing suits and having English accents.
A Lothian and Borders Police spokeswoman said: "This has been an incredibly traumatic experience for the couple who have had their home completely invaded.
"Fortunately they were not hurt, but crimes like these have deeper consequences for the victims and their families.
"It is vital for anyone who saw these men, or were approached in a similar way, to contact police as soon as possible.
