Social engineers steal $4m IT equipment

Brazen robbers conned their way into a shared data centre in London by posing as Policemen with a convincing story:
"The bogus police gained entry to the data centre by claiming that they were investigating claims that there were people on the roof of the building. Five data staff are thought to have been tied up, although none were seriously hurt."

This was clearly a social engineering incident.
