    A real-life ‘evil hypnotist’ is being hunted down after sending at least eight elderly bank customers into trances and stealing their money.

    The crafty crook has been collecting cash from unaware victims in the south-western Russian city of Stavropol.

    It is thought that he has swindled thousands of pounds from unwitting victims.

    The hypnotist has been captured on a bank's CCTV camera.

    In the footage he is seen convincing an elderly gentleman who has been put into a trance to withdraw money.

    ‘He approaches them before they go to the counter and hypnotises them into withdrawing every penny,’ said Andrei Tolstoy, of Stavropol police.

    Victim Mayra Sovic said: ‘I remember this man coming up to me and saying he desperately needed money and I would help him. The next day my bank manager told me I had withdrawn my life savings.’
