Well, I'm a hypnotherapist, and my take is that if - and it's a huge if - he was actually using hypnosis, he would have had to a) pick his targets very carefully for hypnotic responsiveness, and b) suggest to them that he was entitled to the money (or, as you suggest, that he had a weapon).

It's true that people won't do anything that they know to be against their moral code, but with highly responsive subjects (and a highly unethical hypnotist) it is possible to fool people into believing that they're doing something right when they're doing something wrong. Difficult, but possible.
