I received an email this morning warning me about
The AFLAC Scam
Watch out for this scam. Police say that the gang usually comprises four members, one adult and three younger ones.
While the three younger ones, all appearing sweet and innocent, divert their "mark" (or intended target) with a show of friendliness , the fourth -- the eldest -- sneaks in from behind the person's back to expertly rifle through his or her pockets and purses or bags for any valuables being carried.
The attached picture taken from CCTV shows the gang in operation.
