cellphone snatchers in shenzhen

Be wary. Be very wary.
Shenzhen has a high crime and Ive fallen victim to cellphone robbery. While walking along Huaqiangbei (a shopping district),around the corner to the metro station, one man grabbed at my ankle, naturally I got off balanced and bumped onto another man, who I later realized was the one who took my phone right out of my pocket. This is their strategy, the often work in pairs or more, and you wouldnt know what's going on until it's too late.

Passport snatchers

Always remember to put your passport inside your bag because passport snatchers abound in China entry/exit points. I know someone who ran after the snatcher and caught him but he still had to "pay" the crook so he can get his passport back.
