WJLA Reports: “Faux Wallet Helps Man in D.C. Mugging”

Thanks to a reader for sending this article. From the article:

“A man was able to survive a startling attack and keep his money during a mugging, by giving the robbers exactly what they wanted – almost.

For the last year and a half, he’s been walking around with two wallets – his own and a fake one. Inside, he kept $2 and some fake credit cards made out of cardboard. “It’s just another thing I put in my pants whenever I leave the house.”

Wild. I heard a number of people tell me that they been given this same advice. That’s awesome that it worked.
