The Oshkosh Police Department has had approximately five reported cases of two male subjects approaching elderly residents (usually females) and stealing money. The M.O. is that one male speaks with the resident and generally leads them to their backyard to talk about a "problem tree", while the second male enters the home and steals only cash. They represent themselves as being city employees or subcontracted by the city to do tree work, sidewalk repair, etc. The male subjects have been described as being in their 30's to early 40's, average height and weight, and driving a grey or silver truck either with a ladder rack or tool box in the back. One victim in Oshkosh lost approximately $40,000.
