Pickpocketers- Outsmart Them On Your Next Travel

Published

on

 Whenever You Travel, Be Prepared For A Worst-Case Scenario

Even the smartest travelers may let their guard down. If there are Pickpocketers, don’t worry. It can happen to anyone. But how you handle the situation after-the-fact can protect your identity and credit rating. Before you travel, make copies of all your important papers and your credit card numbers and leave them with a trusted friend in the states. It’s even better if you can memorize your credit card numbers plus the phone number on the back of the card to call for fraud protection.

 

8. Don’t Bring Valuables

Minimize the valuables you travel with.  Unless you’re attending a wedding, hanging out with a posh crowd or staying at a cousin’s house there’s no reason to bring expensive jewelry.  Theft can happen in transit as well as hotel rooms and if you’re constantly on the move. It’s also something you can easy leave behind by accident. Find a way to make it look a little trashy and personalized. That way, it’s easily identifiable and not an item thieves will target to resell.

 

7. Avoid Keeping Money In Your Back Pockets

It’s often said that the best invitation for a thief is a wallet in the back pocket. Keep all of your valuables concealed, and consider using a decoy wallet which holds no cards and a minimal amount of cash to distract thieves. When you store your wallet and money in a place which you cannot see or feel, then pickpockets and thieves can easy lift it from you without your notice. Some folks will say that you put your money in your backpack, choose a place few will look or keep a dummy wallet up front to lure thieves to the wrong target.

 

6. Ditch The Purse

 

 Pickpocketers

Ditch the purse and go with a sturdy day pack. Many will disagree with this advice, claiming a backpack makes you look more like a well-targeted tourist. Maybe so, but backpacks hold more and are harder to rip off your back by a thief.  When you look at purse-toting tourists, we assume four worldly things to fit in it– credit cards, an I.D, a mobile phone and money! Backpack wearers meanwhile can stash jackets, water, snacks. Pickpockets happen only if you can fish through them all you might find money.

 

5. Leave Clues For Honest Finders

 Pickpocketers

Accidents happen, and even the most cautious traveler can leave something behind. Maximize your chances of getting it back by taping a tiny note with your email address or travel partner’s phone number to any item you really don’t want to lose, making it easy for a kind soul to return it. For phones, you could use an -If Found Please Return To note as your lock screen, or tuck your business card inside the case.

4. Keep Material Losses In Perspective

Many tourists get indignant when pickpocketed or ripped off. If it happens to you, it’s best to get over it. You’re well-off enough to travel, and thieves aren’t. You let your guard down and they grabbed your camera. It ruins your day and you have to buy a new one, while they sell it for a week’s wages on their scale. If a thief has robbed you of your belongings, don’t let them rob you any further by allowing the loss to ruin your entire trip.

 

3. Leave Valuables In Your Hotel Room

 Pickpocketers

Expensive gear, such as your laptop, is much safer in your room than with you in a day bag on the streets. While hotels often have safes in the room or at the front desk. Some travelers leave their passports secured in the room safe while out for the day. Theft from hotel rooms happens, of course, but it’s relatively rare hoteliers are quick to squelch a pattern of theft. You can have the hotel management to be accountable for your luggage.

 

2. Stay Away From Large Crowds

Vigilance is the best defence against pickpockets, so keep your bags in front of you, either on you or at your feet when using escalators. If you feel like you’ve walked into a sandwich scam situation, politely but firmly ask the people who are blocking the way to move aside and make your way through. It’s easy for a thief to steal away with your wallet in the midst of a bustling commotion. If you see a crowd, walk on the opposite side of the street.

 

1. Trust No One

 Pickpocketers

Pickpocketing is an unfortunate reality of travelling, but a reality nonetheless. That’s why travellers should assume the worst when approached by a stranger, even if you feel rude. The general rule of thumb is to be especially careful if strangers ask for something, whether that be a picture or a donation. Keep your valuables close to your chest when travelling in crowded places. If you find that your attention is drawn elsewhere, remember to keep the safety of your possessions at the front of mind.
