Theres about 20 different ones of these on youtube, and they're all interesting to watch.
Basically these 3 people set up cameras and show how easily people get tricked, scammed, stolen and pickpocketed.
In this one they steal a lady's purse, then the stealer gets her to call a fake call center and give them all her card information.

The odor of scripting is lofting around, but its interesting enough for me not to care, and the techniques they use are real.

Somewhat bizarrely, it's a spin-off from the BBC series "Hustle" - but it's not a piece of fiction. The scams themselves aren't scripted, but the people who are scammed are given all their stuff back and told what happened.

Thankfully :)

Its fun to see their reaction when they're told what happened.

Hehe, I think you got the wrong link. Just youtube the real hustle to find the right one.

Arg! We had multiple videos qeued in windows, and I grabbed the wrong one, edits.

Btw, does anyone keep their wallet in their back pocket? I always thought that was risky, front pockets ftw.

It's not overly risky, a good pick pocket can get it out of either! :D

I keep it in a pocket I can seal when I can (thigh pockets on combats for instance) and if I can't and I'm in an area where pickpockets are known to work, I'll tend to walk around with my hand in my pocket on my wallet.
