Beware Bare ATM Thieves

While this hasn't happened in the Washington, DC area yet, forewarned is forearmed, as the saying goes:  In Paris a man, who had just entered in his secret PIN code was distracted by two topless women.  While his eyes were not on where they should be, one of the women quickly withdrew 300 euros from his account.  Both women then quickly fled and have not been found. 

A local Paris police official offered these words of advice: "We would advise anyone withdrawing cash from a machine to focus on what they are doing and not allow themselves to be distracted, however attractive the view."  

Be aware of your surroundings -- just not too aware.
