Scum! But why can't supermarkets have better cctv in this day and age? Maybe even having one high quality camera on the exit/entrance?

That's the sick thing, a team deliberately targeting some unfortunate soul.

These scumbags need to be found.

Have people still not heard of "Distraction" when using Chip and Pin?
I would suggest that the people who use credit cards/debit cards start using cash if they are unsure of how this works!
The cameras are rubbish but the guy with the suit must be identifiable because he stands out a bloody mile lol!
