  Just another normal rush hour commute

Very pervasive, especially in highly crowded areas such as outside of the big stores, ie, Bloomindales or Macy's or in packed subway cars.

Keep wallets in FRONT pocket or in zipped bags. Make sure purses and backpacks are closed and if possible hold them in front of you.

Tuck any chains or necklaces into your collar as well.
