This was a surprise.

'Look into my eyes': Supermarket robber who hypnotises checkout girls to get the cash is hunted by Italian police.

Italian police have issued video footage of a man who has been hypnotizing supermarket checkout staff and getting them to hand over the cash.

In every case, according to reports, the last thing staff remember is a man leaning over and saying 'Look into my eyes' before suddenly finding the till is empty.

In the latest incident captured on video footage the man walked into a bank in Ancona in northern Italy.

He waited until he got to a female bank clerk and, according to the video footage, appears to hypnotise her into handing over more than £600.

He then calmly walked out.

I didn't think hypnosis could be used like this.

I don't know if I can say this any better than you, but I think this should apply to all of your posts (as well as mine): "We can all google. Your point is?"--You

Really? You have to resort to this. As I mentioned in the opening post my point was that "This was a surprise. I didn't think hypnosis could be used like this." See, that was a comment, an opinion offered. It has been suggested that hypnosis of a person against their will to this degree was not possible and this story suggests otherwise. From the title of the thread "Dangerous hypnosis?" the question arises is hypnosis dangerous? Hardly a giant leap of reasoning is it?

Dig a bit deeper next time.
