Hotel Safe Scam
This is interesting:
Since then, his scams have tended to take place in luxury hotels around the world.
Typically, he would arrive at a hotel, claim to be a guest, and then tell security that he had forgotten the combination code to his safe.
When hotel staff helped him to open the safe, he would pocket the contents and make his escape.
Doesn’t the hotel staff ask for ID before doing something like that?
