This week's animated map Thursday involves a heist. It's a scene from a BBC show entitled "The Real Hustle". This video is a re-enactment of what is purportedly a real con whereby a fingersmith pretending to be a tourist approaches a mark with a large-lensed SLR around his neck and asks for directions, brandishing a map. While they pore over the map together -- and under its cover -- the crook unscrews the lens and spirits it away.
Do be careful out there.
