The victims of credit card theft in Lincoln Park are speaking out and showing the security footage as a warning.   They are telling their story so it doesn’t become somebody else’s.

The thieves redefined the words bold and brazen when they strolled in to Emmit’s Pub last Friday night.  Two women and a man said their hellos and shook hands with people they’d never met before.  Then they found their target and discreetly ripped her off.  The security footage shows the whole thing in less than six-and-a-half minutes.

No word on the whereabouts of the alleged thieves. The bar managers and the victims know all too well that Chicago police have bigger fish to fry, but they want others to know just how easily something like this can happen to them.
