The Pigeon Drop or the Jamaican switch sound really colorful but they are names for cons that can easily swindle the unsuspecting out of thousands of dollars. Two professionals have worked the job on at least one unsuspecting senior where they made contact at the ShopRite on Aramingo Avenue.
24th district police officers are investigating since they may have been captured on video surveillance. The pair are a black male with a Jamaican accent who makes the initial contact and a black male who turns up later.
Beware of any stranger offering to double your money. If it sounds too good to be true, it is. If you encounter this pair, call 911.
