Hi tech security defeated by choccies and winning smile

The strangest story of the last couple of days concerns the removal of over 14 million pounds worth of diamonds from a secure vault at ABN Amro in Antwerp. Possibly the biggest robbery carried out by a single person, The Independent reports that the gentleman thief was armed with a fake passport and chocolates, presumably real, which were used to hoodwink the staff.

It doesn't matter how hi-tech your systems are, where there are people involved, there will always be a way in. Oh with these chocolates you are really spoiling us...
