This is the Amsterdam police publishing surveillance camera shots.

A 94 year old lady let two veiled women into her house. She had been talked into believing the criminals were working for an elderly daycare organisation. While inside one woman stole an atm-card. Later the same evening the duo made a telephone call and asked the pincode.

The islamic camouflage does not seem that effective to me on the camera pictures. However the veil was effective in entering the 94-year-old's house. The old lady assumed that she was talking with ordinary muslim females. She believed the veil was innocent islamic headgear and missed the criminal intent indicated by the camouflage. She would not have let me in had I knocked at the door like that.
