Submission + - Police dress up as doctors to test citizens (yahoo.com)

InsertWittyNameHere writes: Turkish police disguised themselves as doctors, then knocked on people's doors to see how easily they would fall for a confidence scam. They told residents they were screening for high blood pressure and handed out pills.

They were alarmed when residents at 86 out of 100 households visited on Tuesday swallowed the pills immediately.

A local gang had been using the same technique to give people heavy sedatives and then burgle them.
