Metal Detector Line-Up

How the scam works:

You are going towards a security gate and put your bag on the metal detector conveyor belt. Another person sneaks in front of you, seeming to be in a hurry. You are not in a rush, so you don’t mind. Then he gets held up at the detector, taking coins out of his pockets, taking off his belt, shoes, etc.

While he is taking his time getting all the metal off of him, the person in front of him (his accomplice, who went first to the line-up when he saw you approaching it) will just pick up your bag and leave, while the guy “full of metal” catches your attention.

How to avoid:

Now you know it’s a possibility you might not be so nice to the queue-jumpers!
