Let's continue the account of this unfortunate incident on of our readers, Billy:
I already knew that this was an entrapment operation because of so many inconsistencies and it corroborated with your stories.
These are some things i found farce: no call boy would go all the way for 300 and i dont know of a motel for 150; The call boys upon seeing the mobile, already acted funny by trying to panic. The police asked for an id with contact numbers of our relatives and wanted to call them immediately; The police said that they would arrest the 2 guys, but we did not see them place hand cuffs; the mobile did not follow us anymore when we withdrew money from the bank; the cops knew exactly the directions where to negotiate with us discreetly and they knew the nearest bank; after getting the money, the police just went down our car and hailed a cab since the mobile already left him.
In any case, the whole operation was well crafted, but it lacked the believable aspect. The chief police was a good actor but the accomplice needs to be more believable. Deep down i knew this was an entrapment since the time they hailed us, but i lost my focus that's why i gave into paying them off. Honestly, i prefer to be held up by thieves because at least they will not be able to steal anything from me at that time. What rattles me is that their seems to be no difference between a thief and these cops.
If you were in my position, what would you have done?
