Officers said offences known as "ringing the changes" have been committed recently in the North Devon village as well as in Bude and St Ives.
The suspects enter shops and ask for change for a note, they then confuse the unsuspecting shop worker who ends up handing over more cash.
Both men are described as white, aged in their 30s and about five feet nine inches tall.
