"dont think it can't happen to you" Pickpockets Tip by barbipez

Pickpockets, Prague: 116 reviews and 47 photos

you gotta play it smart here. trams metros busses are prime spot for pickpockets. dont let people crowd around you and push you. i've seen a group crowd around an elderly woman and she fought back - as well as get help from others on the tram. it's not excessive, but dont carry you wallet in your back pocket. dont leave your purse unzipped. dont have your valuables in your backpack easily accessible especially if you wear it on your back at all times.
simply be smart and safe.

also - i know in america it's very common to leave your purse on the back of your chair in a restaurant. do NOT do that here. your purse could easily disappear. even in nice places.

there have been a couple of times when i've warned people and they didn't listen and guess what happened. yup. they got ripped off.

be smart. be careful. but dont be paranoid :-)
