Disappearing Act (19/30)


The Disappearing Act became a common fraud in the 1880s. A team consisting of two women and one man stole things such as lace, dresses, accessories, and other high-quality products. The women ordered the merchant to send the goods to their parlor, but they would vanish with the goods, leaving the messenger eagerly waiting for his reward.

In modern days, the Disappearing Act could be perceived to be some kind of retail theft. About $35 million worth of retail merchandise is robbed from stores last year, according to NASP.
