The clip shows a bloke approaching the cash machine, where another man is getting out some cash.
He stands behind the hooded fella, before sneakily grabbing his wallet from his left pocket.
The victim appears completely unaware as the thief looks around to see if anyone had spotted the act.
But – unfortunately for him – someone or something did.
He stares directly at a security camera before deciding to throw the stolen wallet on the floor.
While continuing to apologise to the CCTV, the bloke taps his victim on the shoulder to suggest he has dropped it.
The grateful man shakes his hand as the guilty lad strolls off.
All may not be as it seems, however, as footage of the incident – which occurred somewhere in Germany – was posted by YouTube star and known prankster Halid Arsajev on Facebook.
Halid himself is the supposed thief in the footage, which has been viewed more than nine million times since it was uploaded yesterday (December 29) with the caption “No one saw anything… #helpful #moral courage.”
One sceptical viewer commented: “If the camera wasn’t shaking (indicating this was filmed by an actual person and not a security cam) then I think would have thought this 100% real.”
But another wrote: “He’s like oh s*** I’ll fix it don’t worry don’t arrest me.”
