1/16/2009 - Security - Local ResidentsTargeted by Con Artists

Authorities are warning about con artists, using a common "hand washing" trick, who have struck at least four times in suburban Delray Beach since Dec. 17.

According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, two men knock on the door and say they are with a water company.

They say there's a problem with the pipes or water quality and the need to come in to fix it.

Once inside, the men direct their victims to open all the faucets in the home.

One man fills a cup with water, then drops something in it to make it bubble or fizz.

The man then spills the liquid onto the victim's hand.

He directs the victim to take off jewelry and to wash his or her hands to prevent burns.

While the victim does that, the men slip away with the jewelry.

The four incidents so far were Dec. 17 at 13608 Via Flora, Dec. 31 at 516 Brittany K in Kings Point, Jan. 10 at 6065 Pointe Regal Circle, and Jan. 14 at 15324 Lakes of Delray Blvd.
