The Hot Dog Trick

4 of 19

Where: Airports

The Scam: The perp “accidentally” squirts mustard on you while
eating a hot dog (it’s really a tube of mustard in a bun). Full of apologies, he clumsily
tries to help clean up the mess while an accomplice walks off with your carry-ons.

Advice: Always place your bags between your legs in a public setting, whether
you’re sitting or standing.
