amigo checking
 n.— «Oakland is witnessing a rising crime trend of young “rat packs” preying on poor, often undocumented immigrants who carry their cash with them, according to a new police report. The street term is “amigo checking,” in part because the victims are often Latinos, said Capt. Dave Kozicki.» —“Thieves preying on undocumented immigrants, police say” by Christopher Heredia San Francisco Chronicle (California) Feb. 13, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
