Aflac scam

Watch out for this scam. Police are urging visitors to the city center to be especially vigilant for a new gang operating a slick routine that is aimed at stealing from unwary persons. They say that the gang is usually comprised of four members, one adult and three kids.
While the three younger ones, all appearing sweet and innocent, divert their "mark" with a show of friendliness and fun, the fourth---the eldest---sneaks in from behind the person's back to expertly rifle undetected through his or her pockets and bags for any valuables being carried. The below picture, taken by an alert passerby using a cell phone, shows the gang in operation.
