Crime Alert - Scam

On March 10, 2012 a man at the Barnes and Noble in Westport was approached by a well dressed female who pointed to the man's jacket and said there was a substance on it that he should go and wash off.  At her suggestion the man went to the men's room and while in there was approached by a well dressed man who offered to hold his jacket and help him clean it. 

The man finished and continued shopping.  A short time later he realized his wallet was missing and found out his AMEX card was used at Costco in Milford where $2500.00 was charged. 

Please be aware and let others know of this incident to prevent further scams.  It is beleived these two individuals worked together to steal the wallet and had a third person at Costco.
