Super Bowl Robbery Still a Mystery One Year Later: Over $150,000 was stolen from the winners of a Super Bowl betting crew last year. The co-owner of Mike’s Place was stabbed by one of two masked thieves who ran off with the collective winnings. Ouch!

Bank Manager Foiled Stealing From the Elderly: A branch manager of a bank stole thousands of dollars from an 86-year-old man, apparently hoping the individual would not notice the missing funds. He used a combination of credit and ATM cards to do so.

New Nigerian Scam Targets Dateless Australians: The latest victim, a woman named Patricia, lost nearly $10,000 when she fell for a man over the course of six months. When he left for Nigeria, supposedly to secure land, he claimed to have been mugged and requested she send him money. She got off lucky, though, according to authorities who say the typical scam of this kind ends up costing someone $35,000 dollars.
