There is a new distraction technique going on around and about, and unfortunately I fell victim to it this week. A seasoned traveller, I am surprised and rather upset to have been duped by this.
The technique is simple. I was sat in a cafe with friends, bag safely out of the way (or so I thought), when there was a knock on the window. That half a second of a glance was enough and when I went to get my bag, it simply wasn't there. I didn't even notice, nor did my friend who was looking in my direction.
Please take care when out and about.
