The problem of the thieves that searches you the pockets without shame is world. In Paris, and in all big cities of France, numerous strips share the " market ". But it is no more no less only elsewhere.
It is the opportunity for me to give back " my tricks "

1 ever of sign conspicuous that one is a tourist !
2 some portfolio exists, or of the purse, provide a chain (5 to 10 Euros on any market). It is a good means to dissuade the thieves (the chain is visible).
3 not to put all his/her/its money in the same place, and to separate banking cards, species, checkbook...
4 in the public transportation, not to remain to the middle, but always to get back to a baffle (or seated). not to wait in the front for the embankment (ever no one behind you).
Conspicuous 5 steps of sign of wealth in the tourist places.
6 to avoid to remain immobile in a tail or in the street.
7 to keep on oneself that the copy of his identity papers and passport. The original being in security.
8 to separate money and the papers : EVER ALL TO THE SAME PLACE.
9 in the tails (movies, museums, tourist places), when you are in family, that each supervises that that it happens behind the family's other members.
10 in case of doubt : TO SHOUT ! If the person is dishonest, she is going to run away.

And especially, to remain attentive to everything that surrounds you. Mistrust in a group the hustles, the false drunkards, the children...
The most dangerous places remain the subway, the tourist places, the proximity of the automatic tellers...
