However, the thief reaches for the victim’s wallet and hands him a note. If the money note is hidden in the wallet, the thief steals the customer’s credit card from it.

The maneuver is very fast. The woman who accompanies the thief also takes care to divert the attention of their victim so that the latter sees nothing but the fire.

In possession of the credit card, the scammers spent a total of $1,994 (C$2,645) at the same Walmart, the police report.

The victim reported the fraudulent charges to his banking institution.
