Somewhere between my transaction at the Oakville Whole Foods store, and my car in the parking lot, my Visa card was air-lifted out of my wallet and into a few ATM's to the tune of $2K. The most important thing to take away from this story is the interaction in the parking lot with a well dressed European man claiming to need directions in French. As I filed the police report, I learned that they always work in teams, and they practice their distraction techniques until the heist is seamless. Beware the urge to be a good samaritan.
Life isn't always a buddha bowl of cherries, but it can be real. Real real!
