EAST FLATBUSH - Police are searching for thieves in East Flatbush who are posing as Good Samaritans only to make off with customers' cash.

The thieves allegedly wait for bank customers to enter their PIN number and then pounce, telling their targets the machines are broken and they shouldn't use it. The thieves then take money from unwitting customers who fail to log out of their ATM session.

Authorities are urging residents to be aware of scams and stay alert.
