The Real Hustle
You know a regular day surfing the internet, I came about this tv series called the REAL HUSTLE, it is about how people get con in England, anyway not all of the scam are only in London, some of it are actual scams thats happening around the world, the offer great tips on how NOT TO BE SCAMMED! I saw a few really good one like "the jam auction", "window tap" and also the "laptop exchange"
i would say that not all scam can be performed so easily like the laptop exchange, here how the scam goes, you know in Airport, or Bus checkpoint, we have to slide all our belongings into an X-ray machine? two blokes would be working together in this scam, this is how the exchange the laptop, as they have spotted a mark (mark = victim) , they would follow him to the checkpoint closely, and standing infront of him at the checkpoint, the one carrying a laptop bag would then place his laptop on the Xray machine and let it pass thru while, his other friends stands behind him, and the victim behind them both. Ok here how it goes: once the guy carrying the laptop goes thru, so does his laptop bag right? well his friends would be carrying alot of metal stuff on his coat then triggering the alarm, delaying the people behind where one of them is the victim, which obviously let his lappy go thru the scanner already, his other friend who already pass the metal detector would then take the victims laptop bag instead of his laptop bag, while his friend holds up the line, when they both gets thru, the victim would then take the FAKE laptop bag which he think is his, Thats how the con works, you can see more con’s like this in Youtube.

ok, here is the dearl, not everyone has the same laptop bag these days, there are so many designs on the market and as well these checkpoints have cameras located everywhere, surely your face will be on camera and you are surely to be caught real soon ! enjoy the con. ok me gonna go out now, busy bee lately, catch ya later
