A Saudi man with his friend went into a sweets shop in the Gulf kingdom and gave the worker SR500 note after picking couple of items. Once the worker began counting the change for him, the man picked the SR500 note and put it back into his pocket.
The worker then gave him the change, not realizing that the Saudi had not given him the SR500 note. He later told his manager that he lost his concentration once that customer waved the note in his face.
The incident took place at a sweets shop in the central Saudi town of Aflaj, where the unknown man and his friend were caught on camera robbing the worker face-to-face without his knowledge. But the film later showed the worker appears to have woken up when he returned to his counter after the customer left and checked the drawer.
“The worker told his manager that when the customer waved the SR500 note in his face, he lost his concentration and did not realise he was deceived at that time,” the Saudi Arabic language daily Alyoum said.
