They say, act as if you belong and everything will work itself out. The same idea has inspired a bunch of thieves from NYC who have stolen iPhones worth thousands of dollars.

All they do is to dress up like the employees of the Apple Store, walk to the storage drawers of the store and pilfer Apple products including the iPhones. Earlier in March, another Apple Store was twice hit by fake employees resulting in the loss of 67 iPhones, amounting to nearly $50,000.
