“The world’s notable expert on the techniques of first-rank ‘wires,’ this is what Time magazine entitled Bob Arno. Based on his continued research and direct observance of real street crime, he is regarded as an authority and consulted by police, security experts, and film producers. How to Avoid Thefts, Cons, and Street Scams is an interesting read written by Bob and his wife, Bambi Vincent.
He provides exceptional services about theft risk management solutions for the business and leisure sectors. Being an expert on demeanor and con games, Bob describes his footage with acumen and authority. Although, he is a globally acknowledged street-crime wizard and diversion-theft authority major in a pervasive yet little-understood subculture that has created a multi-billion-dollar industry. He educates about shady con games and audacious thefts through his documentaries.
Bob has been exploring the world’s top travel destinations for the past 20 years tracking street thieves to record and film them in action. He is doing this to equip his presentation with new material acquired from updated MOs of the street thieves themselves.
Numerous interrogations and interviews with criminals provide him an edge to understand the frame of mind of crooks.
He prepared his presentation merging crime-in-action videos and footage of his straight conversation with criminals. These presentations are not only shared with security forces and cops around the world but also made part of documentaries.
His chase to street criminals compelled him to travel from nightclubs to the casino, showrooms to theaters, and industrial entertainment. The age of his career is about 30 years, and success stretches into five continents.
At present, he is a veteran in multinational corporate events, engaging a huge audience with diverse experiences and expectations. The vantage of being multilingual, along with his highly visual physical funny-business, instigates audience participation and breaks all language barriers.
