The Quartzsite Police Depart- ment has received two reports in one week of a group of several white males conducting a card trick scam called "Three Card Monte" for money. We hope to increase awareness of this scam in Quartzsite to help prevent you from becoming a victim. "Three Card Monte", also known as "Find The Lady", "Chase the Ace", "Running the Red", or "Three Card Molly" is a card trick with the same principal as fi nding the rock under one of the three cups. This scam is typically conducted at truck stops, gas stations, hotels, biker rallies, sporting events, and rest areas by at least two con-art- ists, the Inside Man and the Outside Man. The Outside Man pretends to befriend the Victim and brings them into the seem- ingly impromptu card game which is run by the Inside Man. The Outside Man explains to the victim that he just won a large amount of money and convinces the Victim to play by winning a few rounds fi rst. The victim is tricked into thinking it is a simple casino-style card game that is easy to win, when in fact the Victim never wins. Three cards will be shuffl ed quickly and placed face down in front of the victim. The objective of the game is to locate the "Money Card" (usually the Queen of Hearts or Ace of Spades) from one of the three cards. The In- side Man will use sleight of hand to throw the money card into a different position and they will tell the Victim they've lost and will take their money, even by force if refused. Remember that benefi ting from gambling is a criminal offense. If you see or are approached to play such a game, please ada- mantly refuse, go inside and call 9-1-1 immediately.
