`Thieves in Germany stole E7500 ($12,480) from a man by throwing faeces at him from behind and then pick-pocketing him while they pretended to help clean up the mess, authorities said overnight. [..]
The two women then began briskly wiping the filth from the man’s clothing with paper towels they had with them. They were soon joined by a man, who also came bearing paper towels.
Only when the man went to take his foul-smelling trousers to cleaners did he notice that E7500 ($A12480) had been taken from his back pocket by one of the would-be helpers, police said.’
