"Let op zakkenrollers" Pickpockets Tip by sabsi
Pickpockets, Amsterdam: 86 reviews and 38 photos
Unfortunately Amsterdam isn't what I would call the safest city in Europe. There's pickpockets (zakkenrollers - my favourite dutch word ;-) around almost everywhere, but especially in crowded trains (watch out on the way to and from Schiphol airport) and trams.
Carry your wallet somewhere safe and - in case someone tries to rob your money - have some small money in your pockets so that you can give it the thief instead of giving your whole wallet!!
And learn Dutch so that you can talk with the mugger who wants to steal your laptop computer. Otherwise he might get really confused with his sign language :)
