"Beware the pickpockets" Pickpockets Tip by mr_smash

Pickpockets, Prague: 116 reviews and 47 photos

DO NOT walk around with your wallet in your back pocket or remove it with undue care. In the evenings and late at night gangs of pickpockets will approach - one or two will talk to you, ask you for change and distract you while another one or two comeup behind.

If you are on your own this could be quite intimidating. These guys did it to one of our lot and we were in a large group of males and they still tried it on.

They are easily put off though if you make it abundantly clear you know what they are doing and tell them where to go.
