"Pick a Pocket or two" Pickpockets, Beggars, Crime and Scams Tip by atifkazi

Be very vigilant!, The Crime, has become ridiculous!, i cannot believe it!, im a resident of London, and can remember alot!, from my early days. Then Crime wasnt so big, we never saw any. Now, there are pickpocketers, they can work alone or in gangs they are now everywhere, a notorious spot is Oxford Street, BE VERY VIGILANT, If you feel something SCREAM!, Grab the Person, or Shout "HELP ME!, THEIF!, GET HIM!, POLICE". Just make sure you scream in English!, Be VERY CAREFUL, If you are going to tackle the thief, they can be armed! with knives etc. They can be anyone, and they move fast, keep your belongings in ure front pockets (inside pocket of a jacket etc.
This is occuring, in crowded areas so be very careful, i cannot belive what has happened to London over the years :(.
