"Gangs of Thieves in NICE SUITS" Milan Warnings Or Dangers Tip by finannm

Milan Warnings and Dangers: 110 reviews and 48 photos

Beware riding the metro that thieves may look very presentable. Yesterday a man on a crowded metro car was surrounded by about 6 other men in nice suits and ties. They pretended that one of them dropped something on the floor. They all started "looking" for it and then grabbed the man's legs so he couldn't move before stealing everything out of his pockets and jumping off the train! All the passengers just watched.

In general, if there's a "commotion"-- someone seems to lose something or act bizarrely or do anything other than just stand there-- this is a good time to hold tight to your belongings or leave.
