"Mind your belongings" Pick Pockets Tip by b1bob

Pick Pockets, Paris: 173 reviews and 62 photos

  straddle your backpack, wear your neck wallet
by b1bob

If you don't do it anywhere else, please wear your neck wallet here. Your pockets will get picked sure enough. At Notre Dame, some gypsies have the ruse of a flower-laden trolley. While folks admire the flowers, accomplices pick their pockets.

Also, be extra careful during "standing room only" situations on the tube because thieves will bump up real close against you and pick your pockets that way.
