"Pickpockets" Pickpockets, Beggars, Crime and Scams Tip by JulesH


The obvious problem is from pickpockets, especially on the underground or in Oxford Street, which despite having more CCTV cameras per square foot than anywhere else in the World is still a place to get your stuff nicked! No matter how careful you think you are, these people are usually organised gangs who will distract you and use children to commit the crime. Camden Town is also a prime spot for thieves, despite it's great shopping opportunities!
