STRAY-CHIP SCAM


STRAY-CHIP SCAM
Tip of the month
A favorite ruse used by casino thieves is to toss a gambling chip at the feet of a gambler at a slot machine or a table game and then point out the stray chip to the target.
When the intended victim bends to pick up the chip, a confederate reaches for the unsuspecting person's bucket of coins or stack of chips.
So if a seemingly friendly stranger points out that wayward chip on the floor, think twice before taking your eye off your own money.
