A case in point was reported in Philadelphia last week.
78-year-old Marie Bonner stopped to help a black couple browsing at a Kohl's jewelry counter.
Bonner believed she was helping the friendly black man select necklaces for his beloved grandmother. In reality the man was distracting Bonner while his accomplice rummaged through the privileged old white lady's purse.
The scam was recorded by an in-store security video camera.
The couple used Bonner's credit card to purchase a big screen television and gift cards.
Bonner later expressed her incurable altruism by saying, “I guess somebody was very desperate for cash that they had to do something like that.”
Using girth as a gauge, the photo of the alleged perpetrators suggests they are not victims of abject poverty.
