Good reminder to be aware, but that's not new. About 15-20 years ago fake signs were a popular way for thieves to steal bikes in some larger cities (New York City was known for this). They'd put out fake signs, some even inserted into holes drilled in the concrete, and wait for someone to lock their bike to it. Then its just a simple matter of lifting the sign and taking the bike.
