Sadly, this is becoming a growing phenomenon.
Stealing cars is one thing, but stealing peoples’ stuff from their cars nearly right in front of them is something else. It’s a new low that we haven’t seen before, and it’s happening in the UK. Here’s the scam: a car pretends to be in trouble on the side of the highway. One of its passengers (read: asshole thieves) flags down another car seeking help. A Good Samaritan does exactly that, but is unaware there’s a second individual hiding in the falsely broken down car.
When the time is just right, that second dickhead makes his or her move. Sadly enough, this is supposedly a growing phenomenon. Be careful out there, everyone.
