    Modern burglars are bringing ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ tactics to your neighborhood

    Long Island, New York, produce dealer Mike Longo knew there was a problem the moment his phone rang in the wee hours of a Sunday morning in July 2010.

    "Nothing good happens at 3 in the morning," he told CNBC's "American Greed." "When you get a phone call, it's never good news."

    He said his worst fears were realized when he arrived at his business, Arrow Produce, to find an estimated $150,000 in cash and property missing.

    "Everything was taken from me," he said. "Everything you work for your entire life."

    .....On the higher-tech side, always be careful of what you post on social media. It is not just your Facebook friends who are reading your posts. Burglars are watching, too, including some that may live right in your neighborhood.

    "They will monitor social media to determine whether, 'Hey, I'm going away on vacation,' or 'I'm taking the kids to Florida.' They'll look for times of opportunity and that's when you're away," Aviv said.
