Cautions and Alerts

Beware the mustard spill. In this evil twist on the old spilled wine scheme, someone will spray mustard on you and a bystander will approach with an offer to help. This "helpful" person will then commence to rob you.

We like to call this fellow the dirty dog of the caper. You may be thought of as "yellow" but leave the area immediately or call for help if you are accosted with a condiment.

At the very least, they may think you crazy and leave you alone.
