"Hold onto your bag tightly at ALL train stops" Pick Pockets Tip by DonaldDeLeon

Pick Pockets, Paris: 173 reviews and 62 photos


During my first 30 minutes in Paris, I saw my friend's bag get snatched on the RER train from CDG Airport. When the train was about to depart from one of its stops, someone jumped into the train at the precise moment the doors were about to close and grabbed her bag.

She was left without a passport or any form of identification, and without any money or credit cards.

The French police told us that this happens every day to people taking the train from CDG Airport to Paris City center.
