However, the habit is more dangerous than you think, and that’s what this video captured on a grocery store surveillance system shows: a frightening new trend — and experts are sending people a stern warning to remain vigilant.

The Inside Edition started their investigation into this new handbag snatching trend, and they couldn’t believe the discovery. While everyone likely thought the thieves were operating on their own, the security footage reveals a new trick all shoppers should watch out for. Not only is this technique virtually foolproof, but as you will soon see, it can also be completely prevented.

Working in pairs, watch the calculated way these two men sneak up on a down-to-earth woman in the production department. Not only did they manage to escape her wallet, but she doesn’t suspect anything.

Undercover, Inside Edition set out to test this tandem wallet theft technology, and the results were grim. Check out the deceptive new way thieves target shoppers in the video below.
