The elderly victims were distracted while using a HSBC cashpoint in Watford High Street and their bank cards were stolen and money was taken from their accounts.
PC Priya Patel, who is investigating the thefts, said: “We have obtained CCTV images of four men who may be able to provide information that is vital to the investigation.
“If you recognise the men, or if you recognise yourself, please contact me immediately.”
Anyone with information should contact PC Patel via the Herts police non-emergency number 101.
