A man who was dressed as a woman when he tried to use a stolen bank card is being sought by police.
Police have issued CCTV images of the suspect
Officers said CCTV images also show the suspect wearing a wig while in a man's suit in an attempted disguise.
He conned his way into council offices in Neath Abbey and Carmarthen, carrying a tape measures saying he was measuring windows, before stealing bank cards.
He is described as male, white, aged 40, 5ft 10ins tall, of medium build, and with short receding hair.
The con man tricked his way into Tregelles Court council building in Neath Abbey last Tuesday afternoon (19 February) by saying he needed to measure the windows.
He wore a dark suit, white shirt and a light coloured tie and was carrying a clipboard and large tape measure.
While inside the building he stole bank cards which were used five times in Swansea and Llanelli.
He was dressed as a woman when he tried to use one of the cards.
'Wearing a wig'
Dyfed-Powys Police said a similar excuse, measuring windows, was used to gain access to County Hall in Carmarthen on the afternoon of Tuesday 4 December last year.
CCTV cameras caught him using a wig when he tried to withdraw money from banks in Llanelli and Carmarthen.
Det Insp David Rees, of Neath CID, said: "We are investigating along with Dyfed-Powys Police two incidents where a man has gained access to council properties under a false pretence and has gone on to steal bank cards.
"He has then used the cards in the Swansea, Llanelli and Carmarthen areas and has obviously gone to some considerable length to disguise his identity, either by wearing a wig or dressing as a woman.
